Cave Heart Co Ky June 1st 1866
The President of Washington College
I have a Brother going to school in Toronto Canada
he has expressed a disposition to become a member of your school.
I wish you to write me what board & Tuition will cost there per
session also when the next Session will commence.
My Brother is now in his twenty third year
he volunteered in Sixty one was discharged in Sixty two, reenlisted in
Sixty three and was commissioned Capt of a company in Sixty four.
He met with the misfortune of receiving a wound in the arm which will
make him a cripple (?) for life, he is a promising young man and as his physical
powers are impaired my intention is to prepare him for the Law.
You will please write soon direct to Horse Cave, Ky
yours very Respectfully
on reverse in General Lee’s handwriting.
