Charlottesville april. 10th 1819
Capt Garett informs me that I can only get $2000 on account of the property sold to the university I have made arangements to use $3000—which I am Concious is less than the one half—Mr Dinsmore Can satisfy you as to this fact I have made purchases under these Impressions—will you be pleased therefore let me have at this time as much of that money as the 3000$
