Wayles and Francis are now here and will enter with mr Stack who opens his school three days from this time in Charlottesville, for Latin, Greek and French— he is recommended to me by D r Cooper as the best classical scholar he has ever met with in the US. and my conversations with him satisfy me that his method is solidly good. he is a very modest & correct man in his conduct. his tuition fee...
Your favor of Sep. 26. came to hand yesterday only. I had before mentioned Wayles in a letter to D r Cooper so as to engage his friendly attentions to him, and I now inclose you a letter to him to be handed personally, in that I have expressed my views of the most profitable course for him according to your request; and if you approve of it, perhaps Wayles might do well to take a copy of that...
Other engagements have prevented my earlier attention to the enquiries of your’s of the 3 d as to the title of the late Col o Skipwith to the lands at Indian Camp. that title is unquestionable. the part of the tract , called Indian Camp was originally 2,400. a s (if I recollect the quantity correctly) the property of Francis Eppes of the Hundred, who had a son, Col o Rich d Eppes (father of)...

I reserve myself therefore for a personal application, more early...
