You will recollect that I formerly troubled you on the subject of a proper course to be established in a College of general science . such an establishment in my neighborhood (near Charlottesville ), then in contemplation only, has lately advanced so favorably as to get into a course of execution. the single county in which it is located has contributed 30,000.D. and we expect the rest of the...
I recieved yesterday evening your’s of the 15 16 th inst. by which I percieve mine of the 1 st had not then reached you. but you would certainly recieve it very soon after that date, and the two have such bearings on one another, that it strengthens the hope you will find it expedient to come on here as I proposed to you. on a view of all circumstances you will be enabled here to make up your...
Our letters have been very unfortunate in the length of their passage. mine of Sep. 1. appears to have been 17. days getting to you. your’s of the 17 th & 19 th were 20. days coming to me; the ordinary time of the mail from Philadelphia being 5. or 6. days only. your’s of the 30 th came to hand the 9 th inst. the two former ( 17 th &
My long and frequent visits to this place make me a very inexact correspondent. your letter of Oct. 24. was 11. days on it’s passage, instead of 5. or 6. the ordinary time, and it found me on the eve of my departure from Monticello .    It is impossible for me to regret the prospects you have of being satisfactorily fixed at Philadelphia , because I sincerely wish you whatever you think best...
I wrote to you on the 25 th of Nov. from Poplar Forest from whence I returned but a few days ago, & found here yours of Nov. 10. 20. Dec. 6. & 7. I have taken time to communicate to my colleagues (who all live at distances of 20. or 30. miles around) your acceptance of our Physiological professorship, which they lear
Your letter of Jan. 23. is recieved with real affliction. I sincerely lament the loss of D r Wistar , whose health, altho not the best, had yet promised, as I hoped, a longer life. in his line he leaves no superior, and his science was among our principal ornaments. distant as is our position from the immediate scene of this calamity I percieve that, in effect, it may reach us heavily. the...
Our legislature has appropriated 15,000 D. a year for an University, & taken measures for fixing it’s site, which I am confident will result in adopting that of the Central College . our Visitors meet here on the 11 th of May , and I therefore press M r Correa to make his visit a few days before that, because in yours of Feb. 20.
I wrote to you yesterday , since which it has occurred to me that you can render us a great service. among the duties required by the legislature from the Comm rs for the location of their University , one is to state to them the sciences proper for such an institution, and the number of Professors necessary. to determine this so as not to endanger overburthening any Professor, it is essential...
A meeting of Comm rs to agree on & recommend to the legislature a site for their University was held at Rockfish gap on the 1 st inst. where we agreed, 16. to 5. that it should be at our Central College ; and from thence I came here to remove some Rheumatic complaints affections
Your letters of Aug. 26. Sep. 1. 2. 3. were recieved yesterday evening. I returned from the warm springs a few days ago , in prostrated health, from the use of the waters. their effect, and the journey back reduced me to the last stage of exhaustion; but I am recovering. we shall all be happy to recieve here mrs Cooper , yourself & M. Correa , and expect that according to former request you...
