To Thomas Jefferson from Thomas Hall, 1 April 1821

Philadelphia 1st pril 1821


I understand that the appointment of Professors in the Central University of Virginia is about to take place, and I take the liberty of offering myself as a candidate for the chair of Chemistry in that institution.

Aware of the importance of this station, I have not neglected to collect such testimonials in relation to my qualifications as I hope will be satisfactory. I have to request that you will submit them to the consideration of those gentlemen by whom the selection is to be made.

Very respectfully Your obet Sevt

Thos M. Hall M.D.
