Mr. J. Kimball Sir I do not wish transportation to go home, as my home is in Washington. My sister died a few months ago, and left two small children in Danville Va. I am very anxious to go and see about them, but find that I am not able to pay expenses out of my salary as I have my mother to support. I hope you will use your influence to get me free transportation, by so doing you will confer a great favor. Respectfully [[signature]] A. E. Washington. [[/signature]]
