July 8. 1833.
The inclosed letters contain all the information I can give on the subject of a successor to Dr. Dunglison. Neither My personal knowledge nor the enquiries such as I have been able to make can add any thing. I hope the other members of the Board will not be under the same disadvantage.
I am extremely sorry that I must again fail in my attendance, but my crippled & debilitated condition makes it impossible as you will have learned from Dr. Dunglison Be assured always of my affectionate esteem.
