Bainbridge, Feb. 19, 1868.

Maj. Lewis:

Dear Sir,

In addition to what was written yesterday I wd. also state that acting for the A.M.A. I have hired a house in Newton, Baker Ga for a school building at $200 a year, the rent of which, on a part of it I wish the Bureau would assume.  The freedmen there are expecting to build a house before long; can they hope for aid.

I remain, Sir,

Yours very respectfully &c.
W. L. Clark

The A.M.A. owns two acres of land in Newton and will probably build a school house thereon this Spring.  As you are aware their funds are low; and if an appropriation could be made for N. by the Bureau, it would be most welcome.
