Dear Sir

To the best of my recollection, Dr. Barton, Doctr. Wistar and yourself are the Vicepresidents of the Philosophical society; but not being entirely confident in my memory and still less as to the order of the names, I take the liberty of putting the inclosed under a private cover to you, with a request that you will communicate it to your colleagues. I salute you with great friendship and respect
