Your favor of June 5. did not arrive before the Visitors who met in July had closed their Session & left the University. I may safely take on me however, to say that they will feel great obligation for your kind efforts to find a proper Professor for the vacant Chair.

I inclose an extract of a letter from Mr. John Randolph on the subject of a Mr. Richardson, and a letter from the latter. You will observe the request of Mr. Randolph that the object of Mr. Richardson might be eventually communicated for the University at N. York.
