WRITTEN BY JONATHAN S. HERPIN
TO ALFRED GILMAN

                                              Exeter March 6, 1833
 
Dear Sir
 
   I recd, your letter in due course, and
am much obliged to you for the information which is commu-
nicated. I am more and more convinced of the necessity
of giving up my present establishment and I would either
dispose of it to an enterprising printer, who doubtibly would
do well with it, or if I intended to remove to another
town and establish a paper, would remove my establish-
ment also, existing of a variety of job and other type. I am
not now prepared to answer you directly but in time
in about 10 or 12 days to visit your town when I shall
probably soon be able to form an opinion as to the expe-
diency. I am now disposed to think quite favorably
of your plan. If I should [-----?] to remove, it would
be proper for it to take place at the close of my second
volume on the 1st of May next.

   I would visit Lowell earlier, but our town meeting takes
place next Tuesday, when it is proper that I should be
present. Perhaps, however, I may leave on Wednesday, and
be in Lowell on Wednesday evening from Boston.

Yours Sincerely

Jno. S. Herpin
