Letter from Tony DeMuth to Graves Thompson

Phone EXport 2-4709

Anthony M. DeMuth, D. D. S. 206 N. Main St. Farmville, VA. 3 Sept 61

Dear Graves,

Many times have you helped me out of a dilemma and while I am sure that that now is not your position, this may be of some sma small aid to you.

Yesterday I go the APVA card stating that your were to speak on Hampden-Sydney circa 1861. Immediately I thought of some letters that Ann'ts mother had been keeping addressed to Prof. Louis Littlepage Holladay written 1858-90. These I undertook to deliver to you today and in your absence left with Cousin Macon Reed, telling him that you would pick them up. You may find among them something which you might like to use net Sunday: I have not read them all. Between now and when I next see you please consider what should be done with them. Some concern the college and some College Chruch. They are no good stashed away someplace in a trunk.

Ann joins me in an axpression of sympathy.

Cordially, Tony

Univ of Virg June 20, 1858

Prof. L.L. Holladay, now of Hampden Sidney College, was a member of the Latin and Greek classes in this University this session. In 1854-5, when there classes, were both under my charge, and obtained the degree in both Latin and Greek. He has since had some experience in the office of a profession. I learned a very valuable opinion of his ability & attainments, as well as of his disposition and habits of mind. With this opinion of Mr. Holladay, and assuming that he has further developed his journey and extended his attainments, I recommend him
