I have just recd. yours of the 4th. A few lines from Doctr Dunglison had prepared me for such a communication; and I never doubted that the last scene of our illustrious friend would be worthy of the life which it closed. Long as this has been spared to his country and to those who loved him, a few years more were to have been desired for the sake of both. But we are more than consoled for the...
J. Madison presents his respects to Mr. Trist, and commits to his attention, the inclosed papers for Mrs. Randolph forwarded to J. M. by the unknown author. ( DLC : Nicholas P. Trist Papers).
The Board of Visitors have decided that a Secretary be appointed to it, and you have been selected for the service. The salary allotted is $200 payable quarterly. If you think proper to accept the place, it will desirable that you be present at the meeting of the Board tomorrow. Friendly respects $50. has been voted in consideration of yr. service in relation to the Catalogue for the Library...
Since I asked the favor of you to sketch a report from the Visitors of the University such as would embrace the topics and statements which the Board appeared to have in view, it occurred that the occasion required, and the members of the Board would approve, some tribute to the memory of Mr. J. With this view I prepared an introductory paragraph, as you will see; and that the Report might be,...
Your favor of the 28th. having met with delay at our post office, I recd. it too late to look into the papers of accts. &c you were so good as to inclose. I can not but think it will be well that a Statement of what relates to the particular work done since the last Report, and yet to be done, should be made out by the Proctor in a simple form; to be referred to in the report, rather than to...
Your letter & commununications of the 18th. having remained a day or two at our post office, I have been obliged to give in some haste, the final extent & shape to the Report for the Legislature; and after all to leave a couple of blanks which I must ask the favour of you to fill; and then forward the Report directly to Richmond. In filling the blanks, the guide will be the paper of the Come....
I have recd. your favor of the 16th. What relates to the University will be subjects for our conversation. I can not so far avail myself of your dispensation from giving answers to your letters, which I am sure will always merit them as not to make my acknowledgment for the kind indulgence, and to express the pleasure which will be afforded by the promised visit of Mr Terrell & yourself. In...
I send you the commencing paragraph for the Report of the Board of Visitors, which in a more hasty draft had a sanction at the moment of our separation. I thought it best, to lose no time in enabling you to compleat the Report, that none may be lost in forwarding it to its destination, and I trust I shall have the pleasure of receiving it, from your own hand rather than thro’ the mail. Health...
I leave the inclosed open that you may see the papers relating <to> the Hotel Keepers: Should Genl. Cocke, unexpectedly at this season, be in Charlottesv<ille> be so obliging as to have the letter put into his hands; in the contrary event, into t<he> proper mail. I enclose for you Mr. Brokenboroughs report to be assorted with the other documents accompanying that to go from the Rector: on...
Your indisposition mentioned in yours of the 30th. ult: just come to hand gives me the more concern as I fear it has been increased, if not occasioned by an overexertion to hasten the Report for Richmond. The delay is sufficiently explained by the tediousness of the preparatory task, to say nothing of the obstacles in the severity of the season: and were dispatch, of more importance than it...
