Red-Hook Academy, July 6, 18SZ6. Gentlemen—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your polite communication, requesting a copy of my address for publication. I am sensibly affected with the honor which I received when your kindness selected me, from numbers who were more competent, to a due discharge of so interesting a duty. I labored under peculiar embarrassments: I love the land of my birth—I glory in the country of my choice! Reason tells me that my partialities are well justified. I enclose you the address, believing that the candor which characterized the audience to whom it was delivered, will pardon the many faults incident to a composition produced at a short notice, and amidst numerous and important duties which admitted of no suspension. I have the honor to be, Gentlemen, Yours with sincere respect,

JOHN OVERTON CHOULES.
