Captain Charles Young,
9th Cavalry, U.S.A.					Personal
Fort D.A. Russell,

My dear Captain Young:

The matter which I wish to bring to your attention is 

outlined in a communication just received from Mr. Reed Paige 

Clark, who has been designated by President Taft to serve as 

Receiver of Customs for Liberia and who is planning to go to 

Monrovia very soon to help the Liberian people re-organize and 

otherwise straighten out their difficulties.  I enclose a copy 

of Mr. Clark's letter and also a copy of my reply.

Will you kindly let me hear from you at your convenience?

Yours very truly,

Booker T. Washington.
