Lexington Ky Nr 22d 1819
Allow me the honor of presenting to you the first number of a literary journal, which I have undertaken with Mr Everitt Professor of Greek in this University. Though I do not belong to the American family, I am very far from being a Stranger in respect to the high veneration with which every heart is here impressed for you. This is, as well the motive, as the apology for my present intrusion.
