Dear Sir

On my return home last night I recieved your favor of the 29th Int incloseing the draft of a report intended to be made by the Visitors of the Central college to the Governor—and altho much gratified at an opportunity of seeing the report, yet I regret extreemly that my absence from home, should have occasioned a moments delay, in forwarding the same to the Governor; I now return you the report. I have not had the time to shew it to Mr Leitch but will communicate its contents to him;

Respectfully Sir Your Obt St
