Rai.iioh, Dec 80, 1S4S.
To the Hon. Wm. A. Gkaiiav :
1 am gratified in receiving, and especially at
your hands, sir, a copy of resolutions embodying a
vote of thanks I'rjin tlio General Assembly of North
Carolina, fur my efforts in this State in behalt ot
the Insane. It is but little that I havo been ena bled
to do, and I am crateful that mv exertions .
j have been so efficiently sustained by tliose so able
Ho give success to thr cause. ' -
I cannot, sir, assume the merit of having bnen
first or chief in this undertaking. It is but lately
that I have been nude aware that, more than
twenty years since, great and good men of North
Carolina proposed and advocated the construction
of a Hospital fur the Insane. From that time to
the present, at intervals, the sub-it has been re
vived, and the honored nainos of Iredell, titanlv,
Y'ancey, Morchead, Swain, and Graham will bu
associated with this cause when mine .shall have
pasted atvay.
iVjtuI pa?8ige of tbe bill to-day, sir, appro
priating $37,000 for the construction of a Hospi
tal for the accommodation of two hundred and fif
ty patients, allests emphatically the just and
hnmane sentiments of those ttuj'hearted. men in
the Commons arid Senate who supported tho meas
ure. Concluding, as they have done, the year by
a good and noble act, they will receive a new im
pulse in conducting the affairs of the Now Yoar
with wisdom and discretion.
With sentiments of high respect, I am, iw,
D. L. DIX.
