promise to give to you the views which hare occur
red to me vi ith reference to the preepects of the Sun
bury sod Erie Railroad Company. I regret that I
have Rut the time to work out the project' as fully
as it would otherwise afford me pleasure to do.
The importance of the w irk easy be brought be

combined, 'het seem to be perfectly resisiless r .and
such as to 'ethic , . all interests to emberit,tagerly iu
the work of .ecurilig, without further delay, the tor-,
mense adratitageri it will unqie.tiniably‘prothice. •
I regret ilea my iiin. will not enable me In trace
the progress of New York and Philadelphia, from
the period whet' the latter had the
commerce and noprolation. I think it would appear
that the change in the position .11 the two cities is
smelly to be attributed to the early connec:ion
which New York secured with the trade of the 1.260
by her canal, and which' has since been perfected
by her Railroads. The growth of the cities. myrtle
sad villagers in Northern New York, which has been
Emily influenced by these facilities for transforma
tion and travel, has been rnn.t marvelous. I refrain
from the comparison with Northern Pennsylvania,
whic't is vastly ?leiter in mineral and agricultural
wealth. Bat you do unt.defire, I know, these gen•
eralities, but rather my judgment upon those points
which my experience may be supposed to render it
of value.
The city of Eric, in our own State, is admitted to
be the best
. harbor on the Lakes. It is th e proper
point from which to base our calculation*, as here
the verions lines of Railroad diverge with their dif-
ferent gauges, viz; to Ohio and the great West.
with a gauge of 4 feet 10 inches, to New York with
• gauge or 6 feet, and to Philadelphia (for in the
argument, I will assume the Sunbury and Erie
Railroad to be made; and see what it can do in the
competition for the great trade of the Weet,) with
a continuoila gauge of 4 feet Se inches.
