Dear Sir.

In compliance with your request of the 6th Inst: I enclose herewith a copy of the Regns for the admission of Cadets, which I believe will give you all the information you desire.

I regret very much that you were prevented from attending the last June examination, but hope that you will take an early opportunity of visiting the Acady & of witnessing the exercises of the Institution. It will afford me much pleasure to furnish you every facility in my power of doing so.

I remain Very respy. your Obt. Servt.Sigd. R. E. Lee Br. Col.
