Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from James Pleasants, 26 April 1825

Richmond 26th April 1825

Dear Sir

Your letter of the 23 inst: reached me last evening, and I was in hopes of obtaining to day an order of the Literary board directing the payment of the $50,000 to the Rector & visitors, but have been unable to form a board in consequence of the absence from town of one of the members, the law requiring the presence of all to constitute a board. I will certainly take the earliest opportunity of having the subject acted on, and hope to be able to apprise you of the result by the next mail.

I am with highest respect

James Pleasants
