Dear Sir,

The Master of Brigham School <1> will bring you herewith the Book of subscription to the School Fund by which you will see that there was a considerable balance last year against the Measure. We should be thankful therefore if you could help us with a small subscription; The Master will always be willing to show you the School if you should be inclined at any time to look in

I am, my dear Sir yours faithfully
T D. H. Battersby
