Montpellier Jany. 30. 1828.
I have recd. your favor of the 21st. covering a copy of your first Report to the Legislature of the State, as Superintendant of public Instruction.
The Report contains information of general use. And the System of Education to which it relates, is made particularly interesting to the States analogous in the sparseness and mixt kind of their population, to the difficulties encountered in Maryland. Wishing full success to the Experiment, I tender you my esteem & friendly respects.
