Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Archibald Stuart, 24 January 1820

Staunton 24th Jany 20—

Dear Sir

I have signed & now inclose you a copy of Genl Casciuzko’s Will—I am happy to learn the Legislature have it in their power to aid the University without imposing any new burthens upon the people: It is too much the character of that body to commence their undertakings upon a large scale to promise liberally & perform badly—I trust however that the character & Importance of this Institution will exempt it from that Course—you have said nothing in your Note respecting your health, If you knew the deep interest we feel on that subject you would not fail to gratify us whenever an opportunity offered—

I remain Dr Sir yours most affectionately

Arch: Stuart

MHi: Coolidge Collection.
