Dear sir

Mr Kinney wishes to take a cast of the skull of Ethan Allen, if it shall be found in such condition as to admit of it. I think this a matter of a good deal of interest, & hope you will approve the suggestion.

Mr Kinney has heard that the coffin was deposited in a stone vault. If so, it is possible the form of the body may remain unchanged & it would be a very interesting thing to observe whether the fact is so. I am obliged to go -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- go to Montpelier tomorrow, but I do not know that my presence here is of any importance.

In thinking the matter over, I am inclined to believe that the Act of the Leg. directing the erection of the monument supersedes the necessity of any action by the selectmen, & therefore we need not trouble them further on the subject --

Yours truly

G P Marsh note:J N Pomeroy Esq
