Dear Madam,

Yours of the 19th inst., is at hand.  I found also a letter from Miss [[underlined]] Clark [[/underlined]] saying that the N.E. Society would alow her to stay at Anapolis, and they have ordered the Baltimore Association to pay her.  But I shall look to you for her Assistant, which she must have at once.  Her school opened yesterday, with 80 scholars and more are waiting.  I shall write to her to-day asking if she has anyone she wishes appointed.

I send you application on behalf of [[underlined]] Henry Brown [[/underlined]] to teach at Allen's Fresh, Chas. Co. (or rather Newport.)  His application is mislaid and my clerk is away.  I shall have the rental a/c approved to-day.  Other matters I shall let go over till tomorrow on account of a press of business.

Yours &c. 
Bvt. Maj., and Supt. Education.
