Description: Letter from F. A. Mood to J. D. Giddings. Mood is concerned that members of the Texas Methodist conferences are reluctant to support the movement of Soule University. He says the conference delegates will instead hold a vote for Marvin College in Waxahachie. Mood suggests that some of their supporters should go with the joint stock company to purchase some more land for the university and asks Giddings to become a stockholder. The thought of the university's failure greatly distresses Mood.
