Washington City, [[underlined]] August 23[[superscript]] d [[/superscript]], 1826. [[/underlined]] Sir, I have the honor to acknowledge the letter by which you inform me that the Members of the Columbian Institute have deigned to confer upon me the favor of being a Resident Member of the scientific association. I accept, with the highest sense of gratitude, so distinguished a mark of kindness; & as much as it will not interfere with the time I shall bestow upon professional duties, I make a tender of my feeble means to the class of Mathematical Sciences. I have received the Constitutional Ordinance by which the Institute is governed, I will conform to it. I have the honor to be, Sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant [[stylized signature with final "d" encircling remainder]] Bernard Brig[[superscript]] ier [[/superscript]].
