George Town College June 16th 1866



General R E Lee

                                    Dear Sir

Hoping that you will excuse my boldness in writing I pen you this soliciting as a great favor that you will send me a catalogue of the College under your care.  The expenses here are so great that I do not think the altered circumstances of my father will permit my remaining much longer at this place.

            I remain my dear Sir yours

                                                            most respectfully


                                                                        P. A. Morse

Son of Geo W. Morse
