[[/preprinted]] New York, Feb_26_ 1866_ Mr. John Kimball, Supt. Schools &c- Dear Sir- I am in due receipt of yours, of the 24th instant. We are much obliged by your careful attention to our Schools of Alexandria. Pleased to know you are so favorably impressed, both in respect to our teachers & schools. We have just sent another teacher to that city, Miss Harriet M. Webster. Shall be ready to send two or three more to Alexandria, provided they are wanted if you can prepare for them schools & lodging etc- Please all the attention of Mr. Alvord to this fact. Perhaps more new Schools may be opened. We have written for a Principal, for the leading school in A. He will fill the place vacated by transferring Mr. Fish to another field. His wife will act as Matron. It is thought to be better ^[[insert]] that [[/insert]] he should have a Matron at the Home, than to suffer the care of the house to devolve upon the teachers. Grateful for your kind suggestions & proffer of aid. Very truly Yours, [[signature]] James J. Woolsey [[/signature]]
