8749. UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA, Opposition to.—

An opposition [to the University] has been got up. That of our alma mater, William and Mary, is not of much
weight. She must descend into the secondary
rank of academies of preparation for the Uni
versity. The serious enemies are the priests
of the different religious sects, to whose spells
on the human mind its improvement is ominous.
Their pulpits are now resounding with denunciations
against the appointment of Dr. Cooper
whom they charge as a monetheist in opposition
to their tritheism.—
To William Short. Washington ed. vii, 157.
(M. 1820)
