Mr. Chalmers, of the Office of Trade, is also entitled to my warmest acknowledgements. The zeal, activity and kindness he has demonstrated towards me, the unreserved use of his valuable collection, the accuracy of his information, the frank and manly sympathy he has on all occasions avowed in my behalf, have made an impression upon my heart which can never be obliterated.
