To the Chairman of the Board of Curators of Kentucky University:

Call for a
Meeting of the

          The action of the Board of Curators at its late annual Session
in regard to the petition presented by Donors to the seal Estate and
Building Fund and other citizens, who desire to retain the Agricu#=ral
College in Fayette County, has created great dissatisfaction. These
Donors and Citizens beleive that Kentucky University is morally bound
to concede to this community the Woodlands Estate for the permanent
location of the Agricultural and Mechanical College many of them alleg-
ing that they gave for this specific purpose and for no other. We
are convinced that the presentation of this claim must be met in an
equitable and candid spirit by the Board of Curators; that if the claim
be just it ought to be conceded, if unjust its injustice ought to be
demonstrated .

    The good will of the community is essential to the upbuilding of an
Institution of Learning and we should depreciate any policies which
should depreciate any policies which should tend to alienate from Ken-
tucky University the suppert and the confidence of a people who have
shown that in the maintenance of their Institution of Learning they can
be both appreciative and generous.



      From these considerations we respectfully request your Honor to
call, at the earliest practicable date a special meeting of the Board
of Curators of Kentucky University to convene in the city of Lexington
not later than July 24th, 1879 to reconsider the request made in the
petition submitted by Donors and others citizens to the Board over
which you had the honor to preside at its late Session at this place.

                                 Very Respectfully,

G. Stoll,Jr.
A. M. Barnes
D. S. Goodloe.
