Natchez, Miss.

Gen. R. E. Lee-

            My dear Sir-

                                                I have been informed, but in quite indefinite terms, that what is called a “Scholarship” at Washington College, can be procured for $500 & that entitles one to the nomination of one student for a certain number of years; also that the expense for every succeeding year is limited.  Will you be kind enough to send me full information on the subject?

I have a young brother (17 yrs) whom I am anxious to send to you.  Have you circulars or catalogues?  With considerations of the highest regard I am, Sir,

                                                                                    Very Respectfully Yr Obt Sevrt

                                                                                                            Henry Stone, M.D.
