JAY TO REV. DR. ROMEYN.
Bedford, 12th June, 1816.
Your letter of the 1st inst., informing me that I had been elected one of the vice-presidents of the American Bible Society, arrived by the last mail.
I rejoice in the institution of that national society, and assure the Board of Managers that I am very sensible of the honour they have done me in thus connecting me with it.
The events and circumstances under which such societies have been established and multiplied, in my opinion, indicate an origin which makes it the duty of all Christians to unite in giving them decided patronage and zealous support.
I have the honour to be, with respect and esteem, Rev. sir,
Your obedient servant,
