Gentn [Gentlemen?],
I enclose herewith P. of atty. [Power of
Attorney?] executed as I best can. please explain
to the judge that I should have to travel fourteen
hundred miles. to appear before the Consul for this
state. who resides in Philadelphia. I understand
the judge refused to accept the previous one
witnessed in this way. It is unreasonable to
expect me to make such a trip. & then I dont Know
any one in Philadelphia who could identify me to
the Consul if I did go You cant walk across the
States in two days like you can Ireland. I have
lived in both places
Yours truly
Robert N [Sturgedy?]
