Dear Sir,
The discharge of my duties as Supt. of Education requires me to go to Morehead City, to inspect certain buildings and to arrange for their removal to this place, to be used for Freedman's Schools. I do therefore respectfully ask for transportation to Morehead City, N.C. & return to this place

Yours very truly
