I laid your’s and Mr Richardson’s letter before the Council of our incipient University at their monthly meeting, and now return that of Mr R. We have not yet obtained a Charter and cannot expect any pecuniary assistance either from the State or City. We have in that respect great difficulties to encounter and probably still greater from the Sectarian influence, whether that which supports or...
I have just received your letter of 14th inst. When Mr King left England, he transferred to my credit the unexpended balance of the £2000 which had been remitted on account of the University of Virginia. I made sundry payments and in like manner, on my leaving London, I transferred the unexpended balance, amounting to about £300 as far as I can recollect, to the credit of the Secretary of...
Your letters of March 20th & April 9th have been duly received, and although my enquiries are not terminated, I will no longer delay the answer, which it may be desirable for you to receive before the 20th of July. I have extended the enquiry to every accessible quarter; Mr Lawrence the Secy. of the Legation has also been actively employed, and the concourse of candidates for Professorships in...
I arrived here with my family on the 24 th instant after a prosperous voyage of 34 days from Havre: but I could not open my baggage till yesterday. By this day’s mail I send five packets directed to you, and another will accompany this letter. Of the state of your health I have not lately heard, but hope that you have recovered & do not sensibly feel the effects of your accident. I am well...

On my return from Geneva, I found your friendly letter of March last. Most sincerely do I congratulate you on the happy & honorable termination of your political labours. Few indeed have the good fortune, after such career as yours, to carry in their retirement, the entire approbation of their fellow citizens with that of their own conscience. Never was a country left in a more flourishing...
I enclose a letter from Professor Pictet which he gave me during a last excursion to Geneva . I saw there your nephew Terrel with whom every one is well pleased and who appears to be desirous of improving himself in every respect. He is not at all dissipated, and if his expences somewhat exceed his calculations, it is because he has fixed himself in the house of one of the most respectable...
Amongst the offers of persons wishing to go to the United States & to enter their service, one only has appeared to me worthy of attention & to deserve to be submitted to the decision of Government. Mr. LeSueur, whose letter explaining his views is enclosed, is a civil Engineer of reputation, who has executed with much correctness various extensive trigonometrical operations, & whose Services...
The month I have already spent in Paris has been necessarily devoted in a great degree to my private arrangements; and I am only within two days settled in my house. Various considerations induce me to think that it will be proper to open soon the discussion of the subject of indemnities with this Government; & I believe that they expect it. In making my compliment to the King, I took care,...
I have this moment received your’s of 3d. instt., an answer to which has been anticipated by my two last letters. I am urging the Captain of the Peacock, and still hope that he will be ready to sail the day after to morrow. I almost envy you the happy time which you will spend this summer in Orange, and which will not, I hope, be disturbed by any untoward change in our affairs. I think that,...
