Hon. Geo. P. Marsh

Dear Sir,

In your last, of Jany. 8h you suggested that "Prof Guyot of Princeton Coll. would doubtless give me the altitudes of the Green Mts." Some months ago--last Summer, I think, I wrote him at Princeton making this very request, but never recd any reply. I am not personally acquainted with Prof. Guyot, but desired very much to get the most recent & accurate information upon this point, as I had taken especial pains with the White Mts. -- I think if he knew the character of the work for which it is wanted, he would be inclined to send it. If, therefore, you will have the kindness to request it of him, and forward it to me, I shall esteem it a great favor. I should like it, if at all, within a few days.

Truly Yours

A. J. Coolidge

P.S. I shall look for Montpelier & Woodstock tomorrow or next day.
