Richmond. May 10. 1824
Mr Goodacre, from England, who has been delivering Lectures on Astronomy, with so much applause, in the principal Cities of the United States, and whose lectures here, I attended with much pleasure & profit, has expressed a strong desire to see you before his return to Europe—He is also very anxious to visit our University. Having become acquainted with Mr Goodare & his son, during their stay in Richmond, & found them agreeable & well informed gentlemen. I beg permission to introduce them to your acquaintance.
