Dear Sir,

I send, with this, a letter received yesterday from Mr Silloway and have written him as follows: "The number of copies of the perspective which we thought best to have printed, when we were last together, was 400. Should more be wanted they can be ordered hereafter. I will write to Mr Marsh, who is now in Burlington, and request him to communicate with you, when he shall receive a copy of the lithograph; and with regard to the order for the payment of Mr Bufford, it is proper, I think, that it should come from the Auditor and had better be deferred until the meeting of the legislature."

-------------------------------- Page --------------------------------

I do not recollect what was said about the manner of distributing the pictures. I told Mr Silloway that I would see that the Governor was supplied if his quota should be sent to me, but would it not be best to have Mr S. send or take the mass of them to Montpelier?

I do not comprehend what is meant about passing judgement on the picture but whatever is requisite to be done in that behalf I wish you to do, for there is no time for conference, and in the mean time make any suggestions to Mr Silloway which you think his letter to me may require.

Yours, truly,

Norman Williams note:Hon Geo P. Marsh.
