Clarksville, Tenn, May 2nd 1866

Genl Robert E. Lee

            General,

                                    You will much oblige me by sending me a Catalogue of Washington College for this year, with such advice as may enable me to direct the studies of a young man from the present time to the commencement of the next session.

            The youth is about 16 years old not very forward in his age and it is of great importance, in case he should enter, what he should study to advantage in the interval.

            An early answer containing the desired information will be esteemed a great favour by

                                                            Your obedt Servant

                                                                        Daniel F. Wright

                                                                        (Late Senr Surgeon Archer’s Brigade)

Address

            Dr D. F. Wright

                        Clarksville,

                                    Tenn.
