[Letter from F. A. Mood to J. D. Giddings - February 19, 1876]

Description: Letter from F. A. Mood to Hon. J. D. Giddings. Mood says that all the trustees have signed the agreement except for Major John R. Henry and Hon. H. E. McCollough, but Mood is not hopeful for any results from this agreement. He states that Judge J. P. Hughes gave him a favorable lot in exchange for a small bonus for a lot near the university. When Mood examined the house at the lot, he realized that it was empty and not suitable for holding classes. Mood has invested all of the money he has saved and his wife's money in the university and so would like the church to refund him. His health has improved enough that he has resumed his duties to the university.

[Letter from F. A. Mood to J. D. Giddings - February 12, 1876]

Description: Letter from F. A. Mood to Hon. J. D. Giddings. Mood writes an impassioned letter in response to Giddings' doubts about Southwestern and his desire to resign from the Board of Trustees. Mood addresses Giddings' concerns in five numbered points. It appears that one of Giddings' biggest concerns is about the lack of financial support for the university. Mood responds that he is well aware of the risks that he is taking. Mood seems to have had a falling out with his Board of Trustees, and Giddings recommends the he abandons them, but Mood feels too indebted to the board to just let them go. He begs Giddings not to resign for the sake of the institution. Mood fears that his time is limited to lay the foundations of Southwestern University since he has been suffering from pulmonary hemorrhage.
