New York. April 5. 1866-

Mr. John Kimball.
Supt. &c-

Dear Sir, 

I have the honor to inform you that the Committee have reviewed with favor your recommendation, to open a school at Convalescent Camp, some four miles out of Alexandria. We are now corresponding with teachers to be put in charge of the school. A little time may illapse before we shall be able to get those,who may be selected on the ground. But trust it will not be many days.

You were kind enough to say not only a school house but also a house for the teachers could be secured for our use. May we solicit your further kindness in having all things in readiness against the arrival of the teachers at the Camp.

By your former communications, I am led to believe the buildings will be furnished us free of expense.

Very truly yours -
