Mountain View February 9th 47 - My dear Cousin Your letter being directed to White Post, instead of Millwood did not reach till last evening. One from your son Isaac came the day before. I am gratified to find that the disposition to receive more frequent services at Middletown still continues, & Mr Bryant is a suitable person, & I suppose Mr Rooker has correct information on the subject I shall be glad if you can obtain his services. There was I think one of that name from Philadelphia at our Seminary. In relation to the assistance asked from the Missionary Society I am unable to speak with any positiveness I leave that society in the hands of Bishop Johns & the Clergy in Richmond, who only ask my advice when their own information is not sufficient.
