Dr Allen,

Dear Sir,

Herewith I transmit the
memoir of Dr. Willard, which in consequence of
your communicating the wishes of the medical
society in your letter to me of Sep 4. I have
prepared; not so soon as I could have wished,
but as soon I was able to spare time.

By your letter, I was uncertain as to the length
to which you wish a memoir to extend—
and as I am somewhat afraid I have made
it longer than you wish, and withal sensitive
on the subject of garbled articles, which are to
be charged to my authorship, I therefore thought
that in sending the article I would wish it to be
considered in Miss Frisbee's keeping until you
decide whether it suits your purpose as it
is. If it does, of course, it is to be placed in your hands. I suppose you intend publishing something
respecting your the physicians, of your county altho your letter
did not precisely say so; and if you were
now in process of getting up a note and
my article should fall into the hands of the
committee of [??] they might not see any reason
why they should not in case
it did not suit them make such opinions
as they should see fit. And it is merely to
spare you, Sir, from any responsibility in
this case that I take this decided ground.

I have a copy of the article, and if alterations
are need if they are indicated, I might
myself judge proper to make them; but
could not give to another the liberty of doing it.
