a little amusing to me, showing that the Commissioners are hugely bothered to defend themselves — [neither?] evidence of which is their washer woman’s style of calling names. They are evidently ragingly angry – at least Irish is – and so “make fools of themselves.” I am writing for a copy of the report of June last, referred to in my enclosed letters. Unfortunately I have lost my copy, and so cannot quote verbatim. But as soon as I can get a copy, I will send to the Examiner a short article placing in [illegible]aposition what Davidson says about the Grove, and what the Commissioners said in June. If the Century should think it proper to notice the last report of the Commissr’s, would a similar presentation be about as effective as any? The commissioner’s report has done me much good – cleared my mental atmosphere somewhat, and put the blood in better circulation. If those fellows would like a report every where I would be as lively as a cricket.Yours Very TrulyGeo. G. Mackenzie.I date my enclosures at San Francisco, but that is merely a convenience, as “Raymond” is unknown generally.06358
