James Madison Papers

William Wertenbaker to James Madison, 25 November 1828

University of Virginia Nov: 25th. 1828


It is believed that the office of Secretary to the Board of Rector & Visitors will be vacant at their next meeting by the removal of Mr. Trist to the City of Washington. I wish my name to be mentioned to the Board as an applicant for the Office;

With regard to my own claims and qualifications compared with those of other applicants, I shall say nothing, but refer the Board to the Faculty of the University for information as to the manner in which I have heretofore discharged my duties as their secretary, and for any other information which the Visitors may think requisite to ask with respect to my general conduct. Yours with profound Respect

Wm Wertenbaker

RC (ViU).
