University, June 25th 1839
Gentlemen,

It would afford me great pleasure to accept your polite invitation to a public dinner to be given to-day to Gen. [General] Houston , could I do so consistently with indispensable official engagements. My duties in the college lecture-room & chapel require my presence until after five o'clock this evening; __ when, of course, it will be too late to pay my respects to your distinguished guest, or to partake of the good cheer of your worthy host.

I have the honour [honor] to be Gentlemen,
very respectfully,
Your most obdt_ servt_ [obedient servant]
Philip Lindsley
