The President of Columbia College in this City has resigned & we are looking out for a successor. Dr. Wharton has occurred to me as a character worthy of enquiry, & the great confidence I feel in your judgment & candour induces me to have recourse to you. We are extremely anxious to have a well qualified man, as this is the only thing wanting to render our institution very flourishing. We have...
