Washington, 19[[superscript]]th[[/superscript]]" March 1821. Sir, I have received the letter by which you do me the honor to acquaint me of my being elected an honorary Member of the Columbian Institute. It is So much the more flattering a distinction for me that it proves anew testimony of the utmost benevolence they entertain towards me in the U.S,, and particularly in Washington. I will seize the first opportunity afforded to me for expressing to the Members of the Institute all my gratitude; until what, I pray you to be the interpreter of my sentiments for them. Be good enough, Sir, as to present the Society with a valuable work printed in France at the Government expences. H.M. The King my master has deigned to put several copies of it at my disposal in order to distribute them to Learned Societies, and I take pleasure in offering one to the Institute of Columbia. Recieve, Sir, the assurances of the very distinguished consideration which with I have the Honor to be, Your most obedient & humble servant G Hyde de Neuville M[[superscript]]r[[/superscript]]" Asbury Dickins, Secretary of Columbian Institute [[bold line]]
