Dear Sir,
Permit me to request that you will convey my thanks to the President and members of the Michigan Historical Society, for the honor they have conferred in making me an honorary member of their institution. I have never had the pleasure of visiting your state but feel much interest in the success of your society and shall do anything in my power to aid it, with my whole heart.
I did not receive the notice of my election until last January, and at that time was confined by illness to my room. [?] first use which I make of returning health is this [?] to repay my sense of the compliment paid me by the Michigan Historical Society and to wish it all [?] success.
Very Respectfully
