Charlottesville 10th. Jany. 1829.
Annexed I send for your approval, my check on the P. & Directors of the Literary Fund, for Five thousand dollars of the Annuity of 1829—Having to go to Richmond in a few days, Mr. Brockenbrough advises me to take the check with me, that I may negociate it with the Bank while there, as the money will be very soon wanted by the Professors.
Most. Respectfully Your Obt. St.
