Smithfield, Va. Feby 12th/14 Mrs Mary C. B. Munford Richmond, Va. Dear Mrs Munford: I had a long talk today with Mr G. D. Chapman as he was returning to Richmond. I guessed accurately his leanings and the motives influencing Mrs Montague, Dr Blackwell, & Lynchburg had his ear, & they inclined him against the Co-Ordinate College, & if it had to be then enlarge Farmville - any where except Charlottesville I had a long, kind, plain & earnest talk with him & showed him what I supposed were the motives influencing all Lynchburg.
