Friend Lewis

Received your letter this evening and I will say that you can come on here so as to be here Sunday Morning 23rd inst.  Get your breakfast at the St. Nicholas Hotel and tell them that you want to see me, then they can direct you.  Hoping you will fare well in the mean time I remain


G. E. Vandegrift
