Monto Mar. 5. 23
The law concerning the University makes the non-user for a whole year vacate the office of a visitor. mr Chapman Johnson failed to attend both our semi-annual meeting, of the last year from sicness, which has determd his commn. I should have sooner notified you of this & asked renewal but that mr Cabell wrote me he would do it yet not hearing from him again, and anxious that it shd not be pretermitted I take the liberty of mentioning the fact, and if a new commn be not already issued that at your first convenience and forward, , as we meet at the beginning of the next month, and mr Johnsons aid is much valued by us. Accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect
