8757. UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA, Professors.—[further continued] .

A man is not qualified for a professor, knowing nothing but merely
his own profession. He should be otherwise
well educated as to the sciences generally; able
to converse understandingly with the scientific
men with whom he is associated, and to assist
in the councils of the faculty on any subject of
science on which they may have occasion to deliberate.
Without this, he will incur their contempt,
and bring disreputation on the institution.—
To Joseph C. Cabell. Washington ed. vii, 331.
(M. 1824)
