Monticello June 7th 25.
Th: J. to mr Brockenbrough..
Dr Emmet can have both the large basement rooms & to be arranged as he pleases for his chemical purposes. in that case we will use one of the upper oval rooms for a Museum. The wells of the staircases are to be secured by a ballustrade, for which, as well as the staircases I send you a very beautiful form of a balluster. it may be weeks yet before I shall be able to visit the University, even in a carriage. I salute you with frdship & respect.
