Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from Arthur S. Brockenbrough, 7 January 1825

University of Va Jany 7th ’25

Dear Sir,

I beg leave to suggest the propriety of having a Post Office established here (if it be practicable) it will not only be a great convenience to the Professors & students, but may be attended with other good consiquences by keeping the students as much out of Charlottesville as possible—It will only be necessary to have a carrier between Charlottesville & this place two or three times a week which can’t be attended with much expence I submit it to your better judgment

I am Sir respectfully your Obt Sevt

A. S. Brockenbrough
