UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE,
February 28, 1853.
SIR: I have the honor of transmitting to you the Agricultural part of the Annual Report required by law from this Office.
It would have been gratifying to have given a new character to the work, and to have made it such as would better satisfy the wants and the tastes of the best informed among those for whom it is especially intended. Soon after entering upon the duties of this Office, I made strenuous efforts to have this effected; but directly found that no competent person would undertake such a task at so late a period. It has, in fact, cost more than usual efforts to have it completed in the present form, even at this late stage of the session.
The arrangements for obtaining seeds had also been perfected when I came. Measures should be taken hereafter to secure their being delivered at an earlier day, so that they may be distributed in season for the Southern portions of the country.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Hon. DAVID R. ATCHISON,
SILAS H. HODGES.
President pro tem. of the Senate.
