M. Thompson takes the liberty of forwarding the enclosed Volume to M. Dickens, with the request that he would present the same, in his name, to the Columbian Institute, and M. Thompson will be much gratified by its receiving a place in the Library of that Institution. M. Thompson would feel himself honoured by being admitted as a Member of the Institute, but being sensible that such an admission would be advantageous to himself alone, he is afraid of being considered unreasonable for the expression of such a wish.
