Navy Yard Wash: 22 Aug[[superscript]]st[[/superscript]]. 1822 Dear Sir On looking over my accounts I find that on the 22[[superscipt]]d[[/superscript]]: Sept: 1820 I paid Mr. Brumley twenty dollars, stated to be [[underlined]]in full[[/underlined]], of my subscription to the Institute. I have not now time to look further back into my receipts, but have no doubt I shall be able to satisfy that I am correct. The distance from me that the Society hold their meetings and other circumstances relative to the time etc. render it too inconvenient to me to attend; and the extreme little use I should be of to the Society, if I did meet - causes it to be totally unnecessary that I should continue a member. You will be pleased therefore to have my resignation, entered on the minutes. I am very respectfully Dear Sir Yr Obed[[superscript]]t[[/superscript]] Serv[[superscript]]t[[/superscript]] TW Tingey William Lambert Esq.
