Dr. Charles C. Crittenden

c/o Historical Commission

Raleigh, North Carolina

Dear Dr. Crittenden:

I found in front of my office door the other morning when I came in your card indicating to my mind that you had been in town and in passing stopped to see me. I am very sorry to have missed you. I hope it will not be long before you can get down this way again and take over from the county the books and papers embodied in this resolution. I very much hope that you can find some way to help the people at Bath in the furtherance of their project for the restoration.

With good wishes, I am

Yours sincerely,
