"I have had little personal intercourse with him since he left the
Institution.... Feeling however a deep interest in his welfare I have
frequently inquired after him and been gratified to learn, that the stand
taken by him in New York was such as to justify... the hope that he was
destined to make a distinguished professional or literary man. In that
hope I myself have sympathized and most cordially wish him and your
daughter, should their destinies be united, every blessing."
