Dear Sir
I send you by this mail
a photograph from an old picture
of the 1st Thos. [Thomas?] Savage, which you
will find enclosed, with this letter,
also an engraving from a
copy of a portrait by Copley
(in my possession) of Saml [Samuel?].
Phillips Savage [*] who was a member

[*P.R.O.N.I. Ref D 618/233 is copy of lithograph?]

of the Board of War during the
Revolution of 1773 - I would
like Marcus Ward & Co. to see
this as they would be interesting
and valuable in their Historical
& Biographical a/c [account?] of the
The Boston Savages and
their descendants would no doubt
like to get the book when published
so would the sons of Chief Justice
[Shaw's?] family - and the [Emory?]
family of Boston in fact I
think that there are a great many of
the many descendants no doubt who
would be glad to have the book - they
are now in Virginia, North Carolina,
& [Tennessee?] & Michigan - [when?]
you [receive?] this. I should like to hear
if this reaches you safely and in good order
Yours Truly
J. R. Savage
