BOSTON, OCTOBER 15th, 1845. GEXTLEVEN,
The manuscript of the Address I had the honor to deliver before the Association, at their late Festival, is at your disposal. I have fears that its perusal will not sustain the kind regard which it received at the time of its delivery. The wishes of the Association, however, I do not feel at liberty to decline, and, with many thanks for their complimentary vote, and for the manner in which you have been pleased to convey it,
I subscribe myself,
FREDERIC W. LINCOLN, Je. To Geo. G. SMITH,
