Chapel Hill 6 Feb. 1840

My Dear Sir,

The difficulties to which your last letter related, were as I intended in my note by the return mail, in the process of adjustment before your communication was received. They have since been arranged to the entire satisfaction of all parties. A course of lectures on Experimental Philosophy is now delivering, which I hope, and have reason to believe, from what I hear, will be alike creditable to the Professor and the institution. I have been prevented, owing to a listening of recitations, from being present at either of the lectures, as yet.
I expect to make a visit to your city on Wednesday, next, and hope to have an interview with the Ex. Com. & yourself before I return.

Yours very sincerely,

D. L. Swain
