My dear Mrs Post
                               I have rec'd a letter from
C. W. Hebard - of Rochester in behalf of
the Scociety [sic] of Spiritualists of your city
in which he desires to engage me to speak
some sunday or mon in August
   Knowing that you are fully acquainted
with the feelings & wishes of the best
portion of the friends in Rochester. I
write to know if this organization rep-
resents those whom we are accustomed
to meet. Or is it a clique of the
opposite kind? I do this from no un-
friendly motive but to reach the
greatest number of the public.
  Susan wrote that you & the friends
were anxious for me to visit R. this
summer. Indeed we are desirous
of doing so - if my health. and
the weather permit; We can be with
you in two or three weeks from the
present time provided we can make
the proper arrangements.  Now I pro-
pose to make you Agent in the matter
(if you will be so kind) between myself
& Mr Hebard - & I will direct him

(Page 2)

to call on you for the necessary in-
formation. _  If you regard the or-
ganization as favorable to the promotion
of our cause in Rochester. And think
it best for me to lecture under their
auspices. please say to Mr Hebard
that I will speak for them ^one or two sundays^. & that
I have rec'd in St. Louis $50.00 per
sunday _ but probably you people could
not guarantee more than $50.00 & ex-
penses. However I leave that to your
discretion. _ If you donot think
the Scocity [sic] its Auspices favorable
to the best success - please say to Mr
Hebard that I have made other
arrangements = & in that case I leave
the matter in your charge - to consult
with the friends and engage a suitable
place - of course expecting some def-
inite security as to renumeration. -
Pardon me for troubling you - but
I know it is no trouble. & that you
desire us to visit you - & I am so
anxious to have you meet my dear
companion - & wish your people could
hear him politically - If arrange-
ments can be made we will
