Dear Sir

I have just recd. from Mr. Jefferson a letter (Circular)

on the foreseen vacancy in the Law Professorship. It is accompanied by a letter from Professor Pictet of Geneva, which I am desired to forward for perusal of the Visitors now at Richmond. Mr. J. wishes the letter, after perusal, to be returned to him from Richmond

I take this occasion to return my thanks, heretofore as well as now due, for you kind attention in sending me the printed Copy of the Report of the Rector & Visitors of the University. Be so good as to present to our brethren with you, my best respects & to accept them for yourself.
