April 5th

Miss Sarah V Richards
Barnesville, Md.


Yours of the 21st & 31st ult. are at hand. As there is some risk in sending books out into the country I think you had better send your order to Mr. Ballantyne by Mr. Adams as you propose, and I therefore return herewith the money ($1 00/100) which you sent.

The price of writing books, with copies, is $1 80/100 per dozen, and the table cards are ten cents each.

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