July 3rd 1872
My Dear Brother,
I am greatly disappointed not to find you here. I came over immediately after reaching home this morning, partly because of the important business here, but partly because I expected to see you and arrange our trustee meeting.
I was authorized by the executive committee to call a meeting of the Trustees immediately after the meeting of our Committee in Boston, or later as I thought best after seeing the Committee.
I have therefore to call a meeting per order of the Ex. Com.
at 2 P.M. on Aug. 15th inst. at the usual place.
You will put these matters in such shape as you deem regular & desirable.
I write in great haste after a difficult meeting of the Trustees of Mount Holyoke Seminary with loads of extra labor thrown upon me which I am trying to do after everybody else in the Seminary has gone to bed.
You will therefore excuse my haste & my silence on the great questions suggested by your letter.
Yours with fraternal affection
