Your circular, on the subject of the law professor has been received, and we have had a meeting to consider what ought to be done. The continued ill health of M r Gilmer is very much to be lamented, and we deeply deplore the prospect of his loss, in the University and his country— We are very sensible of the importance of filling the vacant chair, as soon as possible, but think that a meeting...
Your note of this morning has this moment been received by Gen l Cocke & myself. The association for an Agricultural Society , adjourned yesterday evening to 10’ 11’ O’clock this day. The Judge Stewart has been engaged to give an opportunity to the members of the Bar to attend. If we let slip this op- occasion, perhaps, it will be impossible to bring the gentlemen together a second time. Will...
The Legislature being on the eve of adjournment, & all the business of my district, & indeed of the state in general, being compleated, or so nearly so, as to admit of my departure, I left town on the 23 d inst & arrived here on the evening of the same day. During the latter part of the session we provided by law that visitors of the University should not lose their seats by the mere fact of...
M r Brokenbrough left this for Gen l Cocke’s yesterday morning. It seems that he cannot establish himself at the University until 1 st Aug t ; yet I hope you may be disposed to engage him, as, I think, he will be a source of great comfort & relief to you. I have reflected a good deal on subjects connected with the University since we separated: some thoughts have occurred to me which I beg...
I have the pleasing satisfaction to inform you that the University Bill passed yesterday, not exactly in the shape its friends preferred, yet in one not very exceptionable. The first intelligence of its passage in the lower House was conveyed to us in the Senate Chamber by a tumultuous noise below, like that which is usual on the adjournment of the House. This was the tumult of rejoicing...
Yours of 22 d covering your bill is received, & I beg you to accept my most heartfelt thanks. I have held a conference on it with some of our friends, and I think it will be a powerful instrument in our hands. Our friends in the other house were committed to the Williamsburg party to vote in the first instance , for the postponement. Then they will be free. If that question should not be...
I have not deemed it necessary to write you in reply to your letter relative to the charter of W m & Mary College, because the passage of the University Bill rendered it unnecessary. But altho’ I shall see you on the first monday in next month, yet it becomes necessary that I should say a few words to you at this time. The Bill concerning the appropriation of the Literary Fund, by which the...
I have had a good hunt for among my papers for Main ’s recipe for the preparation of Haws: and at length, after almost despairing, have found it in the midst of a small volume of extracts from Brown ’s Rural Affairs. I now send it to you, agreeably to your desire.    I am, dear sir, very respectfully & truly yours RC ( ViU: TJP-PC ); endorsed by TJ as received 8 Apr. 1817 and so recorded in...
The select committee of the House of Delegates on the subject of the university has just had a third meeting. 13 members attended. On the question whether the bill should be reported with a blank as to the scite, it was decided to fill in the negative by the casting vote of the Chairman . The Central College was selected as the scite, and the bill
I now do myself the pleasure to enclose you a printed copy of your bill, the printer having just sent the copies to the House . The subject will be agitated in the House of Delegates on tomorrow or the next day. I have no reasons to change my anticipations as to the result of the measures respecting the Literary fund stated in my former Letters to you. Yet I have thought it my duty still to...
