Waynesboro, Pennsylvania

Hon Thaddeus Stevens
Dear Sir,

I wrote to you ten or twelve days ago at the request of Mr. Ahl to know what chance you would give him to rebuild the furnace and forge at Caledonia. I saw him again the other day he wished me to write to you (as probably you had not got the other letter) he appears anxious to know and wants me to write to him soon as I hear from you hope your health continues good.

I remain your friend
W. Hammett
