President of AWashington College@
Please send me a catalogue of the College, as a number of young men here wish to have the distinguished honor of being under your supervision
Also send me a catalogue of the Law School, or if no catalogue - then do me the favor to let me know the terms of the school - the time of its session - and the expenses of boarding. We all look forward anxiously in this part of the state when we can lift out of that Professors Chair, distinguished as it is - and place you in the Governors. I enclose the postage
Direct the catalogues to
Robert F. Patterson, Care of Theophalus Clapp - Arlington Va.
