Summary
Jefferson thanks Breckinridge for forwarding a subscription and reports on the University's financial situation.
A bound volume of minutes, 1814 March 25-1825 October 7, of the trustees of Albemarle Academy, Central College, and the University of Virginia, owned by Breckinridge, is included. The unidentified handwriting in this volume is the same as that in the copies belonging to Joseph C. Cabell (cf. MSS 2791-a) and John Hartwell Cocke (cf. MSS 38-761). The Sixth annual report of the Archivist states that "[t]his fact suggests that Jefferson may have had a number of copies transcribed from his own [cf. RG-1/1/1.381] for the use of his associates in the building of the University."
"j.B." written on first leaf. Apparently missing at least one page; final sentence on last page incomplete. Many pages silked and a number of pages at end have significant paper and text loss.
