Richmond. 6 April. 1826.
I reached this late last evening & fell over one of the banks and got much injured in several parts of my frame, insomuch that I can scarcely write. I have just seen my brother, who has received a reply from Mr Wirt, from which it appears conclusively that he would not accept the law chair. Mr Lomax therefore is the Professor, & the system will remain as you desired.
