Mar. 6 1829
On the rect. of yours of the 26. I had copies of the statement inclosed in it & forwarded one for the Natl. Intelligencer & another for the Enquirer. So exact and authentic a publication on the subject of the Endemic at the University must have a seasonable controul on false or exaggerated accounts from whatever sources proceding.
My letter of the Feby. 23. answerd your preceding one. I have not yet heard from Genl. Cocke on the subject of it. I trust that if any measure additional to the Statement of the Faculty be judged requisite it will have been adopted.
I see with pleasure the Prospectus of a Literary & Scientific Journal to be published at the University. In the hands assuming the task it cannot fail to be useful in a public view, and reflect credit on the Institution.
With my best hopes & wishes for a speedy termination of the distressful Scene in which you are placed, I renew to you assurances of my great esteem & my cordial salutation
