Recipient: Robert E. Lee

My Dear Sir:

It is my privilege to introduce another of my young friends, Mr. Frank Armstrong, who will come under your control and influence as a student in Washington College. Like the other young gentlemen from this place Mr. Armstrong has to regret the interruption in his studies occasioned by the war; but I hope by diligence and close application he will be able to “redeem the time.” Although of manly stature he is youthful in years. I trust he will show himself manly in his disposition and habits, and by assiduity and correct deportment secure your favorable notice. With highest consideration

Your Obt. Servt

James Park
