DAVID A. WELLS TO TILDEN

" NORWICH, CONN, Jan'y 6th, 1876.

"MY DEAR GOVERNOR, -- I do not know as I can testify of my admiration of your message better than by saying that I want you to send me an early copy in pamphlet form for more careful reading and preservation.

"When the novel which Mr. Sherman and I have been writing (now in press) comes out, in a week or two, please see how curiously prices worked on our imaginary island, where the people used something for currency which had no value as a commodity.

"Very truly yours,

"DAVID A. WELLS."

Answered Jan'y 10, 1876, by the Governor, that he desired to submit some of the messages to Mr. Wells, but it was a race against time. The tables were not completed until the discussion was in the proof-reang. "Even I was surprised at the surplus of currency which they evince."
