Dear Sir

This [will] be handed to you by [James] To[dd from] Philada. who intends to enter himself a Student of the University. Being young & a perfect stranger, he will need all the kindness, in getting him properly settled which I well know yr. readiness to bestow in such cases. It is particularly desirable that he shd have in his dormitory an advantageous associate. He proposes to attend the Schools of Ancient Languages, Modern Languages, & Mathema & you will be good eno’ to introduce him to the respective Professors.

I find that instead of Cash he has brought a draft on the Bank at Richmond, which I hope can be readily negociated in Charlottesville
