Town College June 16th 1866
R E Lee
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
