General R. E. Lee

                                    Dear Sir, I have a nephew now in Illinois, who is about to enter college; he desires me to make a selection for him.  Will you do me the favor to inform me what the expenses will be at Washington College for each term, including boarding and tuition; and how far advanced he must be to enter the senior course.   Hoping that a bright prospect is before you and my and my native (Va) state.

                                                                        I remain yours fraternally

                                                                                    A. Given M. D.
