næum, dated Paris, October 13, 1843, acknowledges the receipt of the documents transmitted to that institution, and in behalf of the directors expresses to the Legislature of Maine their grateful sense of the prompt and liberal manner in which their application has been met.

The letter from the director, secretary and treasurer of the Museum of Natural History, dated Paris, 18th May, 1843, acknowledge the receipt through Mr. Vattemare of three reports on the Geology of Maine, forwarded to him by this State, and expresses the thanks of the society to the authorities of Maine.

Your committee have examined the several papers submitted to them, with much interest, and are fully of the opinion, that this useful system of exchanges deserves the continued attention of the United States and of the several States and institutions which have already engaged in establishing and perfecting it. They have evidence before them, that a large number of maps and books designed for the State of Maine, of vastly greater value to the State than the documents for which they were sent in exchange, have as yet failed to reach our library, for want of such an agency as that proposed by Mr. Vattemare, and they recommend the passage of the Resolves herewith submitted, authorizing the appointment of an agent in the city of Paris, to execute the purposes of the existing Resolves of the State of Maine, to promote mutual literary and scientific exchanges with foreign countries.

All which is respectfully submitted.

WILLIAM PAINE, per order.
