United States Internal Revenue,

Collector’s Office, 3d District, Mass.                                                                        

            Boston, Saturday

Dear Mr. Greene:

I don’t want to make up Mr. Downer’s company for him on the 9th prox., but I would like him to know there is now in town, J. B. Mann, Esq., who came out with Gen. Wilson, in Natick, in 1848, and always a fast friend of his, who will be here on that date, and would join if invited.  He is now Chief Clerk in Fifth Audi-tor’s office, Treasury, Wash-ington.  I shall see him, + you can send, if you wish, through me.

Hon. Milo Hildreth, Northboro: Mass., is another of the old fellows. He has a store on Washn [sic] St., [insertion: No. 423] in the shell-jewelry line, and was a fine friend of Sum-ner, Wilson, and the rest.

Outside of 1848, but very near to it, was Charles Field, Post Office, Boston, who used to dine with Mr. Downer, at the “Bird Club.”  He will re-member him.

                                [Truly yours]

                                C. W. Slack
