City of Detroit, Jan. 5. 1822.
The Reverent Cave Jones, of the City of New-York, has recently manifested to me, a willingness to accept a respectable Situation in the new central University; should the stations not already be filled.
Dr Jones is a respectable clergyman of New-York, of the Episcopalian persuasion, and of profound erudition. Lamented dissensions have induced him to turn his views, a second time, to Virginia. I firmly believe he would be an acquisition to any literary institution.—Having just time to mention the subject, by the present mail, will serve, I trust, as an apology for my not entering into any further details.
