A letter from Amos Townsend reporting that Mr. Williams has gone to Farmington, and that he has seen neither Williams nor John T. Norton and is uneasy. Townsend writes that he has not found Seth Staples and has "found Mr. White unwilling to move in the business, & of the decided opinion that nothing can be done. " He reports that all is quiet and that "J.W.H. thinks the two gentlemen whom we fear, are too much concerned & anxious about getting pay for their bills & one of them to retain his office under the coming administration, to care much about anything." He hopes "our fears are more than we have any grounds for" and states a watchman will "give immediate notice of any movement." He asks "what will information do, if we have nothing in our hands to act with?"
