THE WHITE HOUSE
do send someone over to Lewis or Levy the first thing tomorrow - I am so afraid that they may come down upon me in the course of the day - and if I can get over into next week I believe it will be all right - for I have been getting on with some etching plates today that I am sure McLean will take directly they [p. 2] are finished - (keep it dark though - or they might seize the plates before I can get them out of my hands) - But the Levy seemed tolerably decent - and I really can get about 40 or perhaps 50 - for next week - and possibly more - only keep 'em off -
Always yours affecly
