The Bearer M r Calverley has just brought to me the inclosed letter. I have never seen or heard of him before, myself; nor can I make any inquiry about him which could be communicated to you before he reaches Albemarle; as I shall be detained here unavoidably some days longer, waiting upon business to be done in Richmond; and in the mean time availing myself of the compulsory delay to remedy...
I received your letter with the papers of the Literary Board again at 10 A.M. today. Hoping to hear from home I sent to the P. office yesterday evening, but they would not open the mail untill a late hour today, as the Messenger of the Executive reported to me when he returned. The Bond you desire is inclosed, M r Munford having this instant waited on me with it. The Blank being filled with...
I was informed yesterday that M r Johnson of the Board of Visitors of the University had become disqualified by “failure to act for the space of one year” Sect. 7. C. 34. Vol. 1. p. 91. General Cocke, who informed me, is of that opinion; and I believe the other Visitors, now here, are likewise disposed to give that construction, as he failed to attend both the “stated meetings” in the last...
When I arrived in Richmond one of the three Directors of the Literary Fund, M r Pendleton the Senior Councillor, was absent. He arrived on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday morning early, another of them, M r Daniel, went away. As soon as he returns a Board shall be convened, and the fullfillment of the intention of the Legislature with regard to the loan to the University will take place, as...
The absent member of the Literary Board arrived yesterday, and the one who had been in town since Wednesday morning last is now absent. What the result may be I cannot divine. I was at Varina yesterday, but returned last night, and shall take care to be in the w y constantly myself. But this last spring I was here 3 weeks trying & failing every day to have a Council. with very sincere...
M r William F. Pendleton senior Member of the Council, and one of the Directors of the Literary Fund, will return you the Bond executed by the Visitors of the University for the loan of 39.000 $. which I could not give up, as the Board refused to pay more than 29.100 $ upon it. M r Pendleton has suffered himself to be overruled unfortunately, on this occasion, for he is well disposed, and ,...
M r Pendleton a director of the Literary Fund has within this hour agreed with me to complete the Loan to the University, out of money now in Bank. He authorizes me to assure you of his vote when the Bond arrives, which renders the transaction sure. I need not observe that if M r Griffins proposition to cancel the debt due from the University should prevail, the loan authorized by the act of...
The House of delegates by resolution of January 19 th called for information concerning “the title by which the commonwealth holds the land included within the limits of the Capitol Square”. As yet I have been able to Procure none worth communicating and take it for granted that the papers, of whatever kind they were, must have been destroyed when Arnold ravaged the town. I find that six whole...
We have not had a meeting of the Board of the Literary Fund untill today. I have succeeded in geting a resolution passed which renders the completion of the loan very certain as soon as the Bond which is now returned can be again transmitted to this place with the Blanks in it filled as is required. It is understood that orders may accompany the Bond if circumstances should require it, as the...
