I have recd. your favor of Novr. 27. & am much obligd by your attention to the Clover seed. The 10 bushels from your crop will be very acceptable on the terms you mention. Could you add as much more out of what you allot for sale, and give notice in time for Mr Gordon to bring it, I should be glad of it. I shall take an opportunity during the Session of the Legislature, to make the due...
Having heard nothing of Gordon or the Clover seed, and an opportunity offering, I have guarded agst. the uncertainty by supplying myself with as much as will be essential. I shall of course not wish to extend my want from you beyond ten bushels, and would prefer declining that much, if my doing so should be no disappointment to you. Whatever quantity may yet be brought by Gordon, I shall...
I have recd your two favors of the 16 & 17th and am glad that no inconvenience will result from what has happened in the case of the Clover seed. I would have greatly preferred yours to that which I have substituted, not liking altogether the appearance of the latter, and on that account having enlarged the quantity which is to be sown. Friendly respects & best wishes RC (owned by Marshall B....
An alarm has been communicated from Richmond that you think of refusing to return thither at the next Session of the Legislature. I trust it has proceeded more from the anxiety of those who feel the necessity of your co-operation, than from any real danger. I well know the sacrifice you have already made, and readily conceive the just repugnance you may feel to a renewal, perhaps increase of...
Your letter informing the Visitors that you could not join them at their late meeting, was recd. by all of them with the particular feelings of regret excited by the cause of the disappointment. I hope the indisposition was transient, and that your health is now in a satisfactory State. You will have understood that Mr. Key persisted in his resignation, & that Mr. Bonnycastle has taken his...
This will be handed you by Mr. Jesse B. Harison of Lynchburg. He offers himself as successor to Mr Long, in the Professorship of Ancient Languages: & if satisfied by the concurring opinions of the Visitors separately expressed, that his appointment will take place, intends to embark immediately at his own expence for Germany, in order to avail himself of the peculiar opportunities there found...
I have recd. yours of Decr. 23. The difficulty I fear will be as great as the importance of providing as successor to Mr. Long. You know his anxiety to secure the appointment given him in the London University; to which is to be added the necessity he states of his returning to England on other accounts, at the expiration of his stipulated term; so that there is no chance of his permanent stay...
I have just recd. from Professor Lomax a communication of his final purpose to accept the Judicial appointment lately conferred on him, which will of course dissolve his connection with the University. He expresses much gratitude for the favors & friendship he has recd. collectively & individually from the Board of Visitors; & his deep regret that an imperious duty to his family obliges him to...
