Now at the end of the first month we have Scholars enrolled 198 Average attendance 162 Third (3rd) Reader Class 2 Second (2nd) Reader Class 12 First (1st) (about) 35 No of Teachers three (3). Miss. M.F Wells of Madison Ind. came on here about two (2) weeks ago and took charge of the school, assisted by my lady and a soldier detailed from one Regt. I turned over the school to the Western Freedmen Aid Commission, Cincinnati. O. The scholars learn very fast, faster than any I have seen at the North. I should be very much pleased to receive an appointment in your Bureau to any position you might deem fit to appoint me. A salary or money is not my object - but to do them good. I should willingly resign my position in the Regt. to accept one in your Dept. with a salary for less. Some educational enterprize as Superintendent of Freedmens Schools &c would be in accordance with my wishes - I could furnish you with any reccommendations
