I have duly recd. yours of the . I considered the advertisement of your estate in Loudon as an omen that your friends in Virginia were to lose you. It is impossible to gainsay the motives to which you yielded in making N. Y. your residence, tho’ I fear that you will find its climate unsuited to your period of life and the State of your health. I just observe and with much pleasure, that the...

Yours of the 15th. was brought to me from the post=office, Mr. Watson having passed on without calling as you expected him to do. We lost therefore the information he was to give as to your health & that of your family Your silence favors the hope that it has improved. Let us have a proof however under your own hand. My health was again interrupted whilst I was at University, and I am yet not...
I have not heard a word from you or of you thro’ any Channel, since my letter of the . I augur favorably from this silence, as to your health, and hope to see you here by the 7 or 8th. of the approaching month.

I have just recd. yours of the 13th. We had been led to hope that your health was better established than you represent it. As it is progressive and your Constitution, tho’ like mine the worse for wear, has remains of good stamina, I will not despair of the pleasure of seeing you in July, and making a visit together to the University. Should prudence forbid such a journey, I think you ought...
The Nat. Intelligr. of the 19th. gave us the pleasure of finding that you had arrived at Washington in safety, and advancing in convalescence. We left Richd. full of anxiety, produced by the reported effect of what happened to the Steamboat, on your feeble condition I hope this will find you at Oakhill with continued improvement in yr. health and happy in that of Mrs. Monroe & all around you,...
I recd. yours of the 10th. with a full sense of your kindness in taking so much interest in my health. Subsequent to your call on me, I had a return of fever which reduced me to a state of greater weakness than I had before experienced. For several weeks passed, have been on the recovery in strength as well as health; and if no relapse takes place, I may be able to give my attendance at...
I have this moment recd. yours of the 25th., and having a casual oppy. to the P. O. this evening shall get an answr. into the mail tomorrow morning.

I have just recd. yours of the 31st. Ult. inclosing letters recomending Mr J. T. Tracy, and hasten to correct an error you have fallen into which affect[s] the University as well as yourself. It is on the tenth , not the fifteenth of July, that the Visitors are to meet. I address this to N. Y. where you will probably have arrived. It gives us pleasure to find that Mrs. M encounters the...
I have just recd. yours of April 28. I think as you do, that it will be best for us to decline attending the election in this Month, even in our own Counties; and I shall do so, unless it should appear that such a course will be particularly offensive. Of this there is not the least probability. On the contrary the public indications are, that elections on this extraordinary occasion ought to...
