The Revd. Joseph Caldwell bearer of this letter, President of the University of North Carolina, is commissioned to make certain purchases for the library and Philosophical apparatus of that Institution;—If it should be in your power to furnish him any information, or otherwise to assist him in the accomplishment of this object, as I know it will afford the highest gratification to you, I the more readily give you the assurance that I shall feel it as a particular obligation to me.—
I am, &c
John Quincy Adams.
