Dear Sir

Yours, of 5th ult., covering
invitation "to be present on 10th inst
on the occasion of laying the corner stone
of the principal building of the University
Of The South" is just received.

In reply to the request for an early an=
swer I have to regret that indipensa=
ble professional engagements make it im=
possible to indulge the very strong desire
I have to witness that important event.

"The University Of The South"! An
idea of consequence incalculable!

May God prosper it: and make us
wise & diligent in fortifying our civiliza=
tion against the assaults of its enemies.

With sentiments of profound res=
pect your very obt servt.

J. Buford

Rt. Rev. J.H. Otey
