Dear Sir.

I have the honor and pleasure of informing you that this Branch of the American Freedmans Union Commission will pay Twenty dollars ($20) per month each to nine competent teachers, or the difference between local contributions and that amount, exclusive of boards, which in every case according to Supt. Kimballs letter, is to be provided in the localities which he mentions. When he forwards testimonials of the mental and moral fitness of his candidates and informs where and from what date this labor begins, we will send them Commission's and a months salary in advance Unless there are good objections, we wish Mr Louis A. Bell a colored man, who can be found at No 337. 15" St. Washington D. C. to be assigned to an important post, for his letters and credentials indicate unusual competence. 

With kindness and most respectful regards.
Yours truly
