To Thomas Jefferson
Montpellier Mar. 29. 1818.
The day on which the first instalment for the Central College becomes due, being near at hand, I think it not amiss, as no conveyance of mine offers, to intimate, that it shall be paid on draft, or if requisite sent by a special hand.1 Yrs. affectionately
RC (MoHi). Docketed by Jefferson, “recd Apr. 2.”
1. JM subscribed $1,000 to the Central College fund (Cabell, Early History of the University of Virginia, 411).
