Rev. John Kimball. Supt. Schools.

Dear Sir,
Having learned that you desire to employ teachers for the summer, I have three or four months of respite which, I would like very much to be engaged in such work. I have never taught a school, though if I should be appointed I will make every effort to render satisfaction.

In regard to my scholar-ship apply to my teacher, Rev. S. B. Gregory.

Yours obedient servant —
