Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Madison, 21 April 1825

Dr Sir

I have recd yours of the 15th relating to a purchase of the parcels of land offered for sale by Mr Perry. and very chearfully concur in your proposition for making it. The advantage of thus connecting the separate parcels of the University. and securing the sources and ducts which are to supply it with water, seems well to justify the measure on the terms & in the mode explained by you. Even in a pecuniary view, the situation of the property wd be a guaranty agst loss.

Will you have 2 or 3 Copies of the “Enactments &c” inclosed to me. I find I shall need them to comply with friendly requests out of the State
