I inclose you a statement of the administration of the library fund which is perfectly accurate. it charges that fund with every article properly chargeable to it, and leaves the balance as if on hand to be applied hereafter. for the two loans of 5. and 3000. are mere temporary accomodations to the general fund, which need not appear in any permanent account. I return you your statement to be...

The boxes of minerals are to be delivered to D r Emmett in whose care they will be under such arrangemts as he shall...
