e Delavan House, midway between Charlottesville and the University.
where preparations were made to receive us; but having ascertained that we could obtain more commodious quarters, possessing greater advantages, at the University, was immediately set out for that place without walling to prepare dinner; we took a snack, however, which kept us from getting very hungry.
The day was thus occupied in moving and fixing up-- In one hour after our arrival, the citizens of the University gave us what we considered a tolerably good supper, viz: old ham, fish, bts.cuit, rolls, coffee, milk, strawberry preserves, fresh strawberries and cream We ate all we could and had enough left for breakfast, and still something over.
The citizens here seem anxious to assist us in every way. The ladies have offered their services to assist us in brushing our out it. Shame on J. R. M, for such a blunder.
Approved by unanimous vote of the Company.
