GALLATIN TO FRED. DE PEYSTER.
New York, October 22, 1842.
I had the honor to receive your letter informing me that I had been elected a resident member of the New York Historical Society. This alone would have been gratifying to me; but I pray you to present my thanks to its members for the unusual and very kind manner in which I was chosen. I wish I could in return do something towards promoting the objects of the Society; but, independent of other circumstances, the increasing difficulty I experience in reducing my ideas to writing seems to forbid the hope of my being able to produce anything worthy of the public attention.
I pray you to accept the assurances of the high consideration, &c.
