Col. Charles Young,
9th Ohio Battalion,
Columbus, Ohio.

My dear Colonel:-

	First of all, my heartiest congratulations upon your promotion to the 
rank of Colonel in the United States Army.

	In the next place, I write to ask if your attention has been called to 
the President's letter to Dr. Moton which was printed in the last issue of 
the New York Age.

	Last but not least, I write to say that there is a certain measure of 
satisfaction in learning that there is a possibility of your coming to 
Montgomery with the Ohio National Guard in charge of the colored regiment.  
We shall hope to see you very often after you come to Montgomery, and I will 
do myself the honor of calling upon you as soon as you reach Montgomery to 
pay my respects to you.

	I also want, even this early, to ask you to come to Tuskegee Institute 
as our guest, and I hope you will be willing, if possible, to spend an evening 
or a portion of an evening here, in which event I should want to see that an 
unostentatious banquet is given you by our officers and teachers.  Please do 
not say no to this proposition until I can go over it with you in person.

	I feel most happy over the outcome of your particular matter, which is 
just as it should vbe.

					Sincerely and faithfully yours, 
						Emmett Scott
