I wish to introduce to your notice bro. Israel Ivins, he bears a plot prepared at my office for a site for a city in your ward. He is a Surveyor, and so far as I am acquainted perfectly master of his profession. I shall be obliged by your employing him to lay off the city in accordance with the plot if such be agreeable to your mind, and also to do any other surveying required in your district.
