My Friend Marsh

Chapman (I presume it is) of Cavendish has come out with a mean lied in regard to his friend Richard's labors at Montpelier. My friends here, urge me to contradict it, but some one who knows the truth must do it for me. It is too bad, that after my labors to get that building along thus far, having made, or caused to be made every line, that I should be compeled to defend myself. I hope you will do me the favor, as chairman of a board of commissioners to whom I have done my best to be faithfull, to say to the public, that I thus far to say the least am author of the building. Richards has not drawn a line that has been executed. The article to which Chapman refers was a letter from M. by a man who is stopping at Mr. Ballou's for a few weeks. It was written sometime within a week I am yours as ever

I do not acknowledge Richards as architect of that building. I am continualy protesting against his work. I named to you some few of the abominations Powers is at present perpetrating

If you have no better opinion of him than you entertained last year you can imagine what he is doing. Imagine as much as you will, you will all far short. He is a bad man and entirely unfit for his position.

Yours T. W. Silloway
