Miss:

You should send to Messrs Cushings & Bailey 262 Baltimore St. Baltimore for a price list of books; then collect the money of your pupils or their parents for such books as they want, and forward the amount with your order to this firm. The books will be sent according to your instructions, and [[underlined]] at your risk [[/underlined]], and I think it would be well for you to request in your order to have enough deducted from the amount to pay the freight.

Very Respectfully Yours,
W L. Van Derlip
Bvt. Maj. & Supt. of Education
