DEAR SIR, I write this to add that I think it would be very fortunate if President Allen, Dr. Perkins, and their friends, should be at Portsmouth.
I have reason to think they would learn that the new grounds upon which they wish to put their case, would not change the opinion of the judges, or any of them, in any respect. Perhaps, however, you could not suggest this to them ; I think you cannot. But if they should attend of their own heads, it would be well.
Yours, D. WEBSTER.
