I have the honor to inform you that myself, and colleagues arrived here, this evening, after a long and tedious passage. We left London on the 27 th of October, and were detained in the British Channel until the 16 th of December. Of the introduction contained in the accompanying letters with which we were politely favored by M r Gilmer, we shall personally avail ourselves, so soon as the...
The inclosed memorial has been this morning handed in to the Faculty, but as they conceive that the question does not come within their Jurisdiction, they have requested me to inclose the communication to you for your decision. CSmH .
I know not how to express the gratification which I feel, at the subsidence of your troublesome affection; nor the fervor with which I hope the favorable prognostication in which you have indulged may be verified. With respect to the subject of compensation for any trifling attentions which I may have been able to pay you—I beg that I may be allowed to fix my own terms, and to declare most...
An abscess, occasioned by the rays of the Sun powerfully heating my Saddle, has prevented me from visiting Monticello for the last few days, and I fear it is not sufficiently firm to admit of my venturing up today. I shall however, recommend you to take at bedtime as you are deprived of your pills and the symptoms are exacerbated, 50 drops of Laudanum in order that I may distinctly notice...
One of those troublesome ailments to which I have lately been so subject, is again infesting me so much that I am unable to visit you to day: so soon as it has yielded I shall make a point of calling at Monticello. ViU .
I do not recollect the compromise to which you allude in your letter of yesterday—I well recollect your proposition on the subject, but it was waved, not agreed to, by me, as a proof of which I may state that I have not kept any account whatever against you. You will therefore do me the kindness to suffer the trifling attendance I have paid you, since the conversation to which you allude, to...
Mr Jefferson will be pleased to take six grains of Rhubarb with fifteen of Magnesia , every other night, in a little milk—to use the tepid or cold affusion as directed last night—and should the symptoms of which he complained be in any wise aggravated, he had better abstain in part or wholly from vegetable food, living on Animal food & Biscuit. Should the old symptoms become aggravated during...
The catalogue you sent me is the one to which I alluded, but as there will be a meeting of the Faculty at my house on Monday evening, I take the liberty of detaining it in order to see whether any other periodical may be added. The scheme for the Dispensary I shall likewise return as Soon as I can inspect it. ViU .
The Undersigned respectfully suggests to the Rector and Visitors of the University the propriety of instituting some regulations with respect to Graduation in his school. It is true that, as yet, no individual can have passed through such a course of study, in this institution, as to enable him to arrive at the highest honors;—but as the views of the Board of Rector & Visitors have been openly...
The Faculty are at a loss whether you are desirous or not that the whole of the Regulations of the Visitors, of which one Copy has been furnished to me by the Proctor, should be read before the classes—especially those parts which refer to intended prosecutions against Mosby, Druffins, Beverly &c. I will therefore thank you to direct us on the point, and also to request M r Hilliard not to...
I am requested, by the Faculty of the University of Virginia, to lay before you the following Extract from the Minutes of the Faculty & to pray your attention thereto— Robley Dunglison Chairman of the Faculty. “Resolved That a memorial be sent to be Rector, stating that if the periodicals be only furnished annually their utility will be so much diminished, that the greater part of them must,...
When I had the pleasure of seeing you yesterday, it escaped my memory to beg of you an inspection of the Bill of Parcels of the unopened Boxes of Books now in the University. I will therefore feel obliged by your sending them to me by the Bearer to the end that I may take out some works essentially necessary for me in the present department of my course—leaving the remainder in their places so...
When I requested the catalogues from you, I was not the least aware, that the Boxes, in the University, could be considered the property of M r Hilliard, but such being the case it would, of course, be the height of imprudence to meddle with them. I regret this the more inasmuch as those who attended my lectures last year will find that we possess no additional advantages this—& the two first...
