Washington April 5th 1870

Mr Chas A Harrison
Centerville. Md.

Dear Sir

Yours of Mch 31st is received. I am looking every day for the Lumber bill. It is better to have the carpenters paid out of your funds as I cannot give anything until the building is completed. Can you give me any information as to how the Salem building is getting along?

Yours &c
