Robert R. Bishop writes his February 5, 1900 letter on a typewriter and the stationery has a Superior Court heading. In it he promises George Sheldon of Deerfield that he will make an effort to persuade the promoters of the railroad to place the line at the rear of the homelots. His tone is friendly and near the end of the letter he says, "I do not exactly understand why the matter should come before the Legislature at all, but of course there is some reason that I do not understand."
