I inclose letters from Mr. Lawrence, Mr. Brockenbrough & Mr. Davis. It appears from the Acct. in that of Mr. L. that there is a balance in the hands of the Barings of more than £300 Sterg. But Mr. Rives tells me it will probably be absorbed in debts for the Philosophical Apparatus. The communication from Mr. B raises the question whether the vacated Hotel shall be filled or suspended. This...
The last mail brought me your letter of the 4th. inclosing one from Docr. Jones, with your answer. From the footing on which the question of his appointment now rests, and the uncertainty of an earlier provision for the vacant Chair, it may be best to acquiesce in his terms. And if this be your opinion and that of Mr. Cabell & Mr. Johnson, he can be informed by a final letter from you, that a...
I have just recd. the inclosed papers from the University. They give a sad account of the Hotel Keepers. Not recollecting the exact relation in which these are placed by the last enactment to the several Authorities above them, I can not decide well on what may be required from the Executive Committee. Be so good as to favor me with your ideas on the whole subject. In every view, delays must...
I inclose a letter put into my hands by Professor Lomax, which it may be well to communicate to our Colleagues as opportunities offer. It seems to call for some remedial arrangemt. of the fees. Whether any can be applied, before the meeting of the Visitors you will take into consideration. In a letter to Mr. Trist, which he may have mentioned to you, I suggested what occurred to me on that...
I received last evening yours of the 20th. from Charlottesville. You will not doubt the pleasure your visit would have afforded me; but I could not wish it at the cost of suffering the intenseness of the Cold would have imposed on you. I have just communicated to the Proctor, the decision of the Visitors with respect to Mr. Gray & Mr Chapman. The anomalous footing on which they are to be...
I think its proper to inclose you a copy of my letter to Mr. Gallatin, not merely for your information, but that I may be favored with any additions or alterations that may occur to you. You will perceive the difficulty of accomodating the resort to Mr. Gallatin to the shortness of time, the uncertainty of his success, and the proper reserve for the chance of success here. In alluding to the...
I inclose a letter from Mr. Egan covering a letter from Mr. Giles to the Visitors, and copy of a letter from Mr. Jefferson to Mr Giles, as testimonial in favor of his application for the Chair of Mr. Long. As it appears to be the wish of Mr Egan that the papers should be made known to the Visitors as soon as may be, it may be well that they be communicated to our Colleagues as opportunities...
I have just recd. from Doctr. Dunglison a letter of which the inclosed is a copy; and I lose no time in making it known to you, as I am doing to the other Visitors—The following is an extract of a private letter which he desires may also be placed before the Visitors. "Professor Davis begs me to express to you officially his desire to occupy my Pavilion and grounds when I leave the University....
I have just recd. the enclosed letter with the notice it refers to, which I have duly acknowledged. Be so good as to hand the papers to Mr. Wood as requested; and give to the case whatever attention may be proper on the part of the University. I have not seen the Act of Assembly, but take for granted the course pursued is authorized by it. With friendly respects FC (NN : Emmet Collection).
The Proctor has communicated to me certain resolutions of the Faculty, which as he says he has done also to you, I do not inclose. I must on this occasion, as but too often happens, trouble you with a request, to give, as soon as may be convenient, such instructions as you think due to the wishes of the Faculty, and within our authority & means. With great esteem and very sincere regard FC (DLC) .
