Dear Holladay
I would have
answered your letter at once if
the Newspaper report had been
true. but as it was not I thought
an immediate answer was
not essential. Ellett was Professor
here up to 1848 but has been
living in New York ever since.
Our Professor of Chemistry & Geology
is Leconte still alive & kicking
& an amazingly clever fellow. You
will see two very good lectures on
Coal from him in the last Smith-
sonian report of Regrets. There will
be an opening soon in their
Theological Seminary which
will be a very good one for
any of you natural science
fellows who are Theologically
