dcterms.description Glad to hear of his safe arrival at West Point; family news; gives opinion, which was requested, that he should remain at school, even if not feeling well, since to make the journey home would make him even more ill, as well as the expense involved; proceeds to relate similar experiences he had at "the philosophical school" College of William and Mary when he was 16, stating that he was "altogether unqualified" and made a "very ridiculous figure," but used his vacation time to study and "obtained the approbation and praise of the professor"; encourages him to do the same; advises him to use plenty of blankets at night, and get a flannel jacket; expresses warm sentiments about his situation.
