Yut Fulvo Oft he 1th inst., is duly received in your letter you speak of Soto suggestions made by me and you also refer to my unfortunate financial affairs. In answer to the latter i would state Ray first trod la began with the Yongho Ghent Black water looks and dates that work Cost me it Cash sixty thousand dollars which turned nut to be a total loss to me but still of great Benefit to the Coal interests in that quartet. My liberality was co extensive with the whole country but it is sol Tusto attain it to give in detail the whole Story of my troubles As the Public so far As l am informed understand All the circumstances As Wellis i do. I will there fore Only give a statement of my connection with the Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad and Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad and leave the matter with the Public. The Pittsburgh and con Coltsville Railroad the great object of my life. I spent nearly ten years in the Are vice of that company encompassing sea and land at great personal expense in securing Charters at Harrisburg and Annapolis md., and ten thousand items connected with it not necessary to mention. The Groat object was to segues the charter of such value on account of Alna re no Kitfu a tix upon dividends Over acid above six nor cent this tax being incorporated in the warier put to rest a Swee ont legislation so Fras tax was concerned and Tho jul Laos Atuf that Tho preservation of the cha Jer was Worth the million of dollars to the company. This was done and Dono mainly by myself As is Well pc Nawir. Of Cinco my failure hon. Thomas Mollon my Assignee has paid Over to and for the Pittsburgh acid Connellsville Railroad rising sixty to sixty five thousand dollars. $fi�,00i>, whirl amount applied then and now to Tho Purchase of my indebtedness would go far to relieve me together with a reasonable salary for All my time and Cash expended a with ten thousand dollars i had paid on depot ground Woods Purchase which was lost to Nie by the company refusing to make the Hack payment.

Molloff. The balance of my creditors have or will receive in Tho same proportion As the two railroads. The Pitts it urge and Connellsville Railroad has lost nothing in importance to the cities of Pittsburgh and Baltimore and the great West if she Nas by me and from the Progress already made i feel confident Tho Road will to completed with Only about eighty Miles to build with much work done to the Sand Patch Tunnel.
