After a warm and patriotic address from A. E.Graham, the meeting adjourned.

T. Roberts, Chairman.

A. J. Overalls, Secretary.

P.S. Since our last meeting J. G. Britton received a letter from the colored friends of Terre-Haute. They have had a large meeting, and invite the friends to hold the convention at Terre-Haute. They have appointed a committee to prepare a room for the convention to meet in, and three delegates, and passed a resolution to entertain the delegates free of charge. We highly commend their liberality and patriotic spirit. They have also appointed J. G. Britton corresponding secretary for the State of Indiana.

Indiana State Sentinel, March 4, 1842.
