My Friend Marsh. I sent you a day or two ago my plate drawings of framing of various kinds and hope they were received. You may keep them as long as you desire as I have no immediate use for them. Such tracings as you wish for your own use, you are quite at liberty to take. If there is anything not therein expressed, if I can aid you, please write to me.
The lithographs are all of them done, and in the hands of Doc't Powers. I wrote to Mr. Williams before they were printed to know how many to get (I know not whether you were there, or at B. and hence wrote to him) he wrote, "400 copies" and that more could be ordered if needed. I had that number printed, 20 copies I sent to him, to be distributed among himself, Judge Porter and the Governor (he having agreed to see the Gov. supplied) 6 copies I sent to you, and 12 I retained here. The doctor was beset on every hand for copies and as a relief put 60 copies into the book stores. He also thought it to be a good idea to have a few printed on thin paper so that they might be sent by mail. In consideration of the 60 put in the stores and the 20 thin ones & 80 in all have been printed and delivered as above specified. So you see the matter is ended. The doc't has them and I presume they will soon be distributed. Mr. Bufford has made out his bill and I tell him to forward it to you -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- and you to such authority as you may deem proper. Of course after signing it, it will need to go to Woodstock for Mr. Williams and Judge Porter and from thence it may either go back to Bufford and he send it to the Auditor, and get it endorsed amp;c. for payment by the Treasurer or you commissioners may put it through all the line and get the Treasurer to forward the draft. As the line of procedure is a long one and Bufford is in want of his money. I hope you will find it convenient to attend to it soon. Probably it would go through the course easier now than at any time. The picture sell at retail for $1. If there is any one who would canvass the state I presume that thousands could be sold and make it pay for itself. Eagle Hotel would have one surely.

I am yours very truly

Thomas W. Silloway -------------------------------- Page --------------------------------
