Scribner's letter to 2012
When the time capsule was buried 1962, one of the items placed within was a letter from Mayor Scribner to whoever would be mayor in 2012. When the capsule was opened, the letter was damaged but a copy still existed. Here is an excerpt:
- "May we urge you to ever support the ideals of liberty and democracy as set forth by this area's greatest citizen, Thomas Jefferson. And further urge you to make this city the best place in our land in which to live... Finally we salute you and offer our thanks to you for the services you are rendering to the citizens of Charlottesville, many of whom are our children."
