THE REV'D A. JACKSON, M. A.
PROFESSOR OF INT. AND MOR. PHILOSOPHY IN WASHINGTON COLLEGE.
My Dear PROFESSOR,
An ode written for the AssosiaTE-Aguini OF. WASHINGTON ColLEGE, and pronounced liefore inem at their acnual commemoration, could not, without manifest impropriety, be dedicate to any other than yourself, as their presiding kead, But, it is with other considerations that I have chosen to givă ATALNASION any inscription at all. The friendship with which you have nonoreð me, and the hours which I was privileged to pass in your cuinpany, in the intervals of Commencement-week at Hartford, are my motive and apology, for thus troubling your patience and your name.
I trust you will accept the dedication as it is given-in record of one of the happiest weeks I have known: a week which I shall long remember, and in which I cannot but think I have made some acquaintances whom I may call friends through life.
With sincere regard, Reverend and Dear Sir,
Chelsea, August, 1840.
