University of Virginia Dec. 25. 1828
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 22d. of December: and I will take care that every facility be afforded for the delivery of the Books into the possession of the Executor of the late Mr. Jefferson.
The Proctor has already informed you of some trifling inconvenience to which we have been put, by the resignation of one of the Hotel Keepers, in consequence of a decision of the Faculty, different from what the individual expected, but which he ought to have anticipated. He is, I believe, determined to leave, and the cause of his resignation is such, as to prevent the Faculty & especially the Executive of the Faculty, from taking any steps to urge him to stay.
In other respects the Affairs of the University are going on as usual. I have the honor to be with profound respect &c &c
