Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Alexander Garrett, 16 March 1824

Charlottesville 16th March 1824

Dear Sir

Thinking it possible that at this meeting of the Visitors, they may take into consideration the applications for stewardships at the University, I take the liberty of enclosing two letters written me on that subject, the one by Col. P. P. Barbour the other by Reynolds Chapman esq. clerk of Orange, setting forth in strong terms the pretentions of Major Geo. W. Spotswood of Orange county to such appointment.

In your estimate of the funds of the University applicable to the Rotunda, should you not deduct $3000. the estimated loss of subscription money, leaving the balance of $20823.98 applicable to the Rotunda instead of $23823.98 according to your estimate of the 9th instant

Respectfully Your Mo Obt Servt
