Author: Jefferson, Thomas, 1743-1826
Abstract: University of Virginia is an outstanding example of classical architecture, but is lacking its keystone, the rotunda; opposition is fueled by the College of William & Mary and by Presbyterians, who "dread the light which this university is to shed on the public mind"; Unitarianism is "a breeze advancing from the North"; wishes that Congress would spend suplus funds on public improvements; Jefferson's health has improved, but he is still weak.
