Sparta, Georgia 27th July, 1825
At the request of a friend who proposes to place a son at the University of Virginia, I beg leave to enquire of you what are the facilities & terms of instruction to students in that institution, particularly, in the science of law.
I fear that applications of this nature are calculated to touch upon that time which would be devoted to other & more important avocations, & must request to make the time & manner of your answer comport entirely with your convenience.
With sentiments of profound respect & veneration, I am, Sir,
Charles Eaton Haynes
