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
