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 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 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 requests out of the State
