I will thank you to inform the members that the Committee, appointed to wait on their President, to solicit him to deliver an address at the next anniversary, performed that duty, and report, that the President expressed his thanks for the proposed honor, but declines, at present, in consequence of the multiplicity of business, which engages his attention, but hopes at some future period that he would be enabled to comply with their wishes - I have the honor to remain your hum[[superscript]] e [[/superscript]].
