James Madison Papers

Board of Visitors, University of Virginia, 1 October 1828

University of Virginia Wednesday, October 1st. 1828. Agreeably to the adjournment at the meeting in July last, four members of the Board of Visitors made their appearance—Chapman Johnson, Joseph C. Cabell, William C. Rives, and J. H. Cocke—who were informed by a letter to the secretary from the Rector, that, owing to his very feeble state of body, he found himself unable to attend.

In the expectation of the arrival of Mr Monroe, the members present defered organizing themselves; but met and took into consideration various questions and papers relating to the University.
