Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Joseph Carrington Cabell, 19 August 1825

Edgewood 19th August. 1825.

Dear Sir,

Your favor of 4th inst reached me by the mail of last week. Shortly after it came to hand I was called to Bremo on business, where I authorised Genl Cocke, if he should reach Monticello before my regular written reply, to inform you that I should vote for the immediate appointment of Mr Gilmer, as the Professor of Law. I am confident he would be appointed at the meeting in October, and the anticipation by your circular will give him a longer interval for preparation.—I am, dear Sir, most respectfully, & truly yours

(signed) Joseph C. Cabell
