Respectfully ret'd

My conferences with the Bureau have reached this conclusion that if a bureau officer either in the educational or Bounty work will occupy our office or a part of it, then the Bureau will pay the rent.

If our cashier at any point will do yr. bounty work then the Bureau will assume the rent. I shall to morrow send an offical copy of the agreement of the Bureau to Mr Brodie and I ask you to do what is in your power to bring all the work for the Freedmen under one roof.

Yrs very Res'ly
