ALS signed “G. W. Carver,” one page, 8.5 x 11, Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute letterhead, June 3, 1932. Letter to "My esteemed friend, Mr. Davis," in full: "So glad to get your good letter, if it suits you come earlier than you did before, which will give us a longer time to discuss some things in which I am sure you will be immensely interested, pertaining to the development of your most interesting mind. Come first, to Rockeyfeller Hall, the building in which the lilly pond graces the front. You come in the ground off the highway by the water tank, do not turn but come straight down and you will see the pond. My den is No. 1 in the brick Bldg. where the shelf of plants are, I will be looking for you." In fine condition, with a stain to the top edge.
