My dear Hardman

I am at Craces. he wants to have 3 or 4 patterns of gas branches for his place.1 he says they are constantly asked for. he is crying out for more metal work.2 what is there looks like nothing & after Easter will be the Season. The Captain has written a kind letter so I am going on Wednesday morning. I told him if he blew me up I would not come. I could not bear it. I have got a good Large job I expect to day. something worth having—at least I hope so. My Pamplet is out & expect you have it by this time.

  • ever dear Hardman   
  • your devoted friend
