I am very desirous to connect myself with some [growing?] Institution where I can throw my whole soul into a life work. I am now passing the winter in the delightful home of my sister Mrs. [Tozer?], whose husband is Gen. [Tozer?] of the [Finn?] Whitter Fuller and Co. - Mr.Whitter is my cousin - I mention these facts should you wish to make inquiries at any time.
