In part: "I sincerely hope the time has now come when I can establish cordial relations with a Society which I have long regarded with so much honor & respect.... I shall gladly avail myself of this ocassion to show the deep interest which I feel in the noble efforts of the Ohio Teachers of Common Schools." The letter dates from two months after Mann assumed the presidency of the newly established Antioch College at Yellow Springs.
