Your favr. of Apl. 12 came duly to hand, with the little pamphlets accompanying it: for which I return my thanks with the arrears due for those formerly sent me. Having never read the Memorial of the Boston Merchants, and may not be an admitted Judge of the performance your facts, & the remarks founded on them certainly press very hard on the authors.
Your letter just recd. recommending Mr. Tracie, will with one from himself recd. some time ago, be laid before the Visitors at their Meeting in July, when all Candidates for the Classical Chair in the University, will be before them I renew to you Sir the expression of my esteem & my good wishes
