Dear Baird

Tell the party that wrote that letter, that the party who owned the sulphurs can get more from a party in Sicily, but don't intend to deal any more with the party that wrote the letter. Also, that though the party that owned the sulphurs don't know how to pack sulphurs, he does know English enough not to call parties any person, except parties that call other -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- people parties, and herewith the party that owns the sulphurs gives the party that wrote the letter his blessing.

If you'll copy the above, & send it to the 'party' in strict anonymity, I will requite when I get my claim. Well I am sorry they are broken, & I bequeath them all to you. I think there will be sharp corners enough to show the crystalline forms at least. Let me know what you paid the -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- express, & I will remit.

Mrs M. has suffered a good deal lately. I am greatly grieved that I can't take her to Philadelphia, but there is no help for it-

I am grievously tormented of Satan incarnate in Pecks. I don't ask to have them rewarded according to their works -- Less than that will answer my turn, but I pray speedily a measure of justice, lest I utterly faint by the way. Mrs M joins me in love to you both --

Yours truly

G P Marsh note:Prof S F Baird
