Williamsburg October 4. 1850.</p

My dear Sir. Your Letter of the 22 augt was
received a few days since on my return here
from the Springs. This accounts for my
not answering sooner as it is, in fact, just
to hand. Supposing that the Fall Term
of your School has commenced, or is at
hand, I have determined day after
Tomorrow (Sunday say directly after
early Breakfast) to send you as
Boarders & Scholars two of our Boys,
Elisha & George. They will be at York
Town & cross over to Gloucester early
as possible, and I have to request the
favor of you to send for them, and
early enough for them not to be detained
in Gloucester Town.

I will write by the Boys, and
with best Regards to all hands

I am yrs very truly
S Jones
