I take the liberty to introduce to you the bearer, M r Arthur S: Brockenbrough . He goes up to see whether his services will be needed by the trustees of the university , and whether it would be worth his while to leave his occupations here. He is a man of great respectability.

II. III. of the Western range that if the foundations are dug to that, the trimming them to...
I must again trouble you on the subject of the University — In making the contracts for the brick work, I had placed the undertakers upon the same footing, but M r Perry objects to it stating that the payment is not agreeable to the his propositions which runs thus “and the brick work for the said buildings the same that Gen l Cocke paid Whitelaw
Your letter of the 7 th was recieved in due time. mr Perry is entitled to what we agreed to, not to what he proposed . we agreed that Gen l Cocke ’s bargain with Whately should be ours. that was that he was to find all and do all for 11 ¼
Will you be so good as to drop me a line the moment the Philadelphia workmen arrive, informing me when they may be expected here, as it might induce me to put off my departure until I see them fixed here.
