LS, one page, 8 x 10.5, Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute letterhead, November 10, 1898. Letter to diplomat, lawyer, and ambassador Joseph H. Choate in New York, in full: "Enclosed I send you a copy of my last annual report to the Trustee, which I hope you will find time to read. The school is in good condition as to its organization and the results of its work. The work of our graduates is more successful than we dared hope for. The recent war excitement and interest made it very hard for us to get money during the spring and summer months and this makes our need for money this year greater than usual. We are most grateful for your help and interest." In fine condition.
