Am sorry I could not have had further talk with you last evening at Hiawatha but was compelled to return on the train.  I will see the Sabetha as will as Seneca people relative to a grand County Temperance Mass-meeting a Hyde park here sometime after the 4th of July & if you can arrange to be here I am confident we can have a large crowd - such a crowd as the people here are interested here in this region at last an will XX for it.  I have written Joseph Hansen the passes agt the RR for rates on the 12th for ratification meeting & the 4th (3d) of July from different points on their line as well as other meetings of the celebrating during the season, so you can arrange & suit yourself as to time after the celebration anytime.


Yours Very Truly  Cyrus Shinn
