Most truly yours,

H. B. Colman. The communication was ordered spread on the Journal. The Speaker also announced the following:

Ann Arbor, May 8, 1897. Mr. Lewis M. Miller, Clerk of the House of Representatives, Lansing,

Mich.:

My Dear Sir--I have yours of May 6th, containing a resolution by the House, the Senate concurring, that I be invited to address the members of the legislature in Representative Hall on Tuesday evening, May 11. The resolution does not state subject upon which I am expected to speak, but I assume that the members desire something upon University mat. ters. The time is so short that I cannot of course prepare a formal address. I will appear on the evening named, however, and give an informal talk upon the University and its relation to the people of the State, together with some suggestions as to its needs.

Will you kindly convey, through the proper channel, my thanks to the members of the House for the invitation to appear before them?
