General,

You will much oblige me by sending me a Catalogue of Washington College for this year, with such advice as may enable me to direct the studies of a young man from the present time to the commencement of the next session.

The youth is about 16 years old not very forward in his age and it is of great importance, in case he should enter, what he should study to advantage in the interval.

An early answer containing the desired information will be esteemed a great favour by

Your obedt Servant

Daniel F. Wright
(Late Senr Surgeon Archer’s Brigade)

Address Dr D. F. Wright Clarksville, Tenn.
