My dear Fannin,

Thanks for your note - I enclose a few lines from Wood as the news from our District - you already know it. You ask me about the Col: I have not intentionally left you in the dark as to his doings - he having latterly left everything in my hands and I don't think done anything without consulting me, but you have seen him before this and I dare say know all about it. So long as I had nothing particular to complain of I said nothing about him - he has for what reason I don't know been particularly friendly to me. I however always regard the motto 'Timeo Danaos' I am obliged to go to work but will write by orderly or per Hamlin.


Yours always
Geo. B. Worgan

Please see to it I dont know officially that I am knocked off!
