LS as president, one page, 8 x 10, May 25, 1847. Letter to Jonathan Rutherford, Jonathan M. Patton, and James Lyons, in full: "I have received your letter of the 21st Instant, enclosing the proceedings adopted at a meeting of the citizens of Richmond, and tendering to me on their behalf a welcome to the Metropolis of Virginia on my way to visit the University of North Carolina. Having made my arrangements to travel by the public conveyances, I regret that it will be in my power to remain but a very short time in Richmond, during which it will give me pleasure to exchange personal salutations with as many of my fellow citizens as the limited opportunity will permit. Tendering through you to those whom you represent, my acknowledgments for the honour done me, and to yourselves personally my thanks for the courteous manners in which you have communicated their wishes." In fine condition.
