My dear Sir.
Mr Whitwell the Architect of our new arrangement & my friend Captain Macdonald have a great desire to see the improvements in building which you have introduced in the Virginia University & for this purpose I take the liberty of giving them an introduction to you. These gentlemen who are in my confidence shall inform you of all the proceedings which have occurred since I saw you relative to the new system & I shall with pleasure learn of them of you & Mrs Randolph & family & I trust they will convey intelligence of your continued health & of the happiness of all around you.
Being greatly hurried. I can add that with the greatest esteem I remain
