Dear Sir:

I am returning the papers incident to my appointment as Second Alternate to Mr. Henry Thomas, Principal for cadetship at the US Military Academy at West Point, N.Y. I feel that I am unable to qualify at this time.

I have taken the liberty of holding the pamphlet, Information Relative to the Appointment and Admission of Cadets to the USMA, West Point, N.Y.

Thanking you for this consideration, and regretting my inability to qualify at this time, I am,

Very truly yours,

Benjamin Oliver Davis, Jr.
