Gen R E Lee

                        Dear Sir

                                                I have a son not quite fourteen years old whom I wish to send to College.

                        Will you please to send me a catalogue or circular showing the expenses and course of studies of the college over which you preside

                        Perhaps you may remember me the writer as a member of the Millitary (sic) Committee of the Ho Representatives of the CS during the war

                                    I have an English friend who requested me to ask you for your autograph

                                                                Yours Respy

                                                                        R R Bridgers
