Dear Sir

Yours of this day's date is received. --

I understand that Dr. Powers is to go to Boston tomorrow, but, I do not know on what business. Probably he will see Silloway

At the last session of the Legislature a board of Commissioners of the State Library was appointed of which we are members. As it is expressly provided that no compensation is to be allowed for services, the republic might receive no detriment if Gov. Fletcher would call the board together at Montpelier and attend himself some time this month, after the 25." I have no engagement to hinder my -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- attending such a convocation until about the 3d of May, but cannot well leave town till the 25" of this month. -- Merrill is a member of the house and if he and Richards, who are the resident members, would [set?] such a call on foot I think it might induce the governor to notify a meeting if there is any thing for us to do when we get together. I suppose somebody knows the cause and reasons for providing for this supervision of the library, tho' I know nothing of it.

Yours respectfully

Norman Williams note:Hon. Geo. P. Marsh
