Washington DC
Jan 16th 1867

Col W [[Burke?]]

I have the honor to report that the [[?]] that lumber at the School House on [[?]] near 9 [[?]] on the Island District two days ago is leaving a ton of coal out in the yard to be stolen.  We have no place to put it until you send the lumber.

Will you send by the same team to the same school (Miss Chase/Black Board).  And a book case from the Free Library Cor 5th & [[?]] (for which I sent our order).  

Also a Black Board to Kendell [[?]] care of Maj. Townsend.
