Paris - July 10[[superscript]][[underline]]th[[/underline]][[/superscript]] 1824. Sir I have had the honor to receive a letter from Mr. Secretary Dickens, dated the 6[[superscript]][[underline]]th[[/underline]][[/superscript]] of March last informing me that I was elected a corresponding member of the 'Columbian Institute'. Whilst I acknowledge with much satisfaction the honor conferred on me - it is with equal regret I add that the Institute may experience disappointment at the choice, unless, under the guidance of its officers - the insufficiency of my abilities should in some measure be supplied by my zeal for the prosperity of all the Institutions of my country - and in particular of the 'Columbian Institute' - the central one - and by my desire to contribute to its usefulness. _ And I shall be happy to receive any instructions that may enable me to aid in the accomplishment of that object. I have the honor to be very respectfully Sir, your most obedient servant J. Cox Barnet Hon[[superscript]][[underline]]ble[[/underline]][[/superscript]] Jn.[[superscript]]o[[/superscript]] Q. Adams President of the 'Columbian Institute.'
