Maine Wesleyan Seminary, Nov. 10, 1835,
Gentlemen -- I herewith transmit to you a copy of the Poem to which you allude in your note of the 6th inst. You are aware under what pressure of other duties the Poem was thrown together; at intervals, too, when the mind is least poetical. It was designed, moreover, merely for delivery. In presenting you with this copy, I feel urged to accompany it with these remarks, hoping that you will consider it as an offering to you, rather than to the public. With sentiments of respect, I am most obediently yours.
