Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from B.W.Y., 18 February 1825

Richmond 18th Feby. 1825.

Dear Sir.

The arrival of the Professors from Europe renders me very anxious, to know when we may reasonably calculate on the commencement of the operations of the University, a knowledge of that circumstance is necessary for all who intend becoming students at that place (of which number I am one) should you deem this letter worthy an answer, information on the following queries will be very acceptable

Query What studies will be prosecuted at that place—
2d What qualifications are requisite for one wishing to become a student
3ly Whether those qualifications would be required of a Law Student


I deem the importance of this subject a sufficient apology for this address—

I am Sir RSPY

B. W. Y—
