J. Madison presents his respects to Mr. Garrett, and returns the check for $3000. with his signature as requested. RC ( ViU ).
I return the check in yours of the 11th. filled with the sum of $12.000, as proposed, and with the sanction of the Rector. If it be the practice to prefix "approved" before the signature, be so obliging as to supply the omission. With great respect RC ( ViU ).
Your letter of the 9th. postmarked the 10th. inst. was not received till yesterday, whether delayed on the way, or not duly delivered from the office at O.C. House, I know not. I had signified to Genl. Cocke my wish that he would concur with you in arrangements for giving effect to the legal authority for a loan. I am sorry for the failure of the first experiment, and can only express my hope...
Since I recd. yours of May 3, I have recd. the enclosed offer of a Loan from Mr. T. J. Randolph as Trustee of Mrs. Randolph, accompanied by a copy of the paper drafted by Mr. Johnson, from whom I have not heard the result of his communication with the Literary Board. With a view to hasten a provision for debts of the University, I can not do better than put into your hands the two paper<s with...
If General Cocke should happen to be in Charlottesville or at the University, be so obliging as to have the inclosed letter immediately handed to him, if not at either to give it the earliest conveyance by mail to Bremo. Friendly respects RC ( ViU ); FC (DLC) .
I have recd. from a gentleman in Kentucky, who wishes to back an application to the Legislature, for aid to the Transylvania University, with the examples of other States, a request of a statement of the grants made to the University of Virginia, and to any other Collegiate Institutions within the State. May I ask the favor of you to guard me against any inaccuracies, by noting to me the...
Do me the favor to have the enclosed handed to Genl. Cocke, if he should be at your Court on Monday: if not, to let it go on to him by the mail. I take this occasion to thank you for the statement sent me for the gentleman in Kentucky. It came in good time, and ought not to have been allowed to interfere with any of your official attentions. With great esteem & friendly respects RC ( ViU ).
Do me the favor to forward, for the Report to be made to the Literary Board, the annual contribution of the Bursar With great respect Draft (DLC) . The following draft for A. S. Brockenbrough, November 21, 1828, is subjoined.
The documents sent in consequence of my request of Novr. 21. came safe to hand. The acct from July 1828 to the last Session of the Board in Octr. was unnecessary it being decided to limit the annual report for the Legislature, to the year from July 1827. to July 1828 only. What is particularly wanted, not being in the hands of Mr. Trist nor yet recd. from you is the acct. from July 1827. to...
I have just recd. yours of the 8th. & thank you for your attention to mine of the 5th. In justice to Mr. Trist, I must correct my error in saying he had informed me that he had written to you on the subject of the acct. from July to December 1827. On recurring to his letter I find it says only that he had written to Charlottesville . It was but my inference only & that, as appears, an...
Having thought it my duty, under the existing state and prospect of my health, to forward to the Governour my resignation as a visitor of the University of Virginia, I return your Draft on the Literary Fund that it may receive the requisite sanction from the proper source. Be pleased to accept at the same time assurances of my high esteem and cordial respects. FC (DLC) .
