In finishing the Library room of the Rotunda in what way do you propose securing it at the head of the stairs? whether by a partition around the well hole of the Stairs and a door in the front of landing or a lobby extending to the rear of the columns next the stairs?

I have not had the last advertisement printed in hand bills or on letter sheets, if you wish it I will have a few struck off—I have several of the notices printed last summer on letter sheets, which with some slight alterations gives all the necessary information—be pleased to say if you will have some of them—If you have examined the survey of the lots for the Professors &c, be pleased to let...

I have a letter from M r Coffee stating his prices for the ornaments for the Corinthian cornice in the room intended for the Museum—I think them extravagantly high, he puts down the leaf of the Modilion in Putty composition at 40 ½ cents and in his composition (the baked earth we have heretofore gotten of him) at 28c—in lead 56c for each leaf For the Frize ornaments in Putty composition 3....
I beg leave to suggest the propriety of having a Post Office established here (if it be practicable) it will not only be a great convenience to the Professors & students, but may be attended with other good consiquences by keeping the students as much out of Charlottesville as possible—It will only be necessary to have a carrier between Charlottesville & this place two or three times a week...
