Dear Sir My request that a meeting of the General Com. of the Col. Institute should be called arose from a conversation with the President, Dr. Cutbush, whom I wanted to attend the meeting, and he promised to do. I supposed the call would, as usual, be by a public advrt and that he as well as the other officers would see it in the newspapers. If this course shall not be promised, I will thank you ^[[insertion]] especially [[/insertion]] to notify Dr. Cutbush of the time and place of the meeting, as well as the other officers if convenient. I am very respectfully Yr. ob. st. Sam Smith Sep. 13, 1817
