Montpellier May 2. 1827.
In answer to your letter of April 25. I have to remark that it is Mr. Key professor of Mathematics, and not Mr. Bonnycastle, who is about to resign his place in the University of Virginia, to which I can only add that the intimation of your wishes with respect to the vacancy, will be duly laid before the Visitors at their appointed meeting in July next. With esteem & friendly respects
