My dear Sir,

The President was so much engaged on Friday that he had no time to see me. I think you had better get up the certificate signed by 5 Ministers testifying to the fact 1. that I am a regularly ordained Minister 2. that I have officiated as such in one of the leading congregations of this country & 3. my good character and present standing. It would be nice for the Board of Delegates to send a letter with it recommending me, I shall then hand both to the President. I believe that the Reformers are trying to get one of their own clique in, through their political influence.

My letter of Friday has no doubt reached you. Things are astir in Va.
