when they had refused to give my city any portion of taxes to the whole of which she was justly entitled. I had promised Miss Virginia to vote for the bill, and I expect to do so, but I did not care to take any part in the preliminaries. But if you & Miss Virginia, my neighbors and friends feel that you want me to help you, it will give me pleasure to vote to get it on the calendar. Have been confined to my room today with a deep cold, but hope to be able to be in Richmond tomorrow. Yours sincerely P. H. Drewry
