Your notice to Teachers has induced me to offer myself as an applicant if your terms should meet my wishes. I have been engaged in teaching Public Schools for the last four years and feel myself competent to impart instruction in all the branches which constitute a good English Education. For my character and qualifications I would refer you to Rev R Nelson AME- Principal of Wyoming Seminary at Kingston Pa. G. LaBar Teacher of Mathematics & Natural Science in the same Institution, W.W. Ketcham a late Teacher in Girard College, Dr A B Longshore, Beaver Meadow, PA & OH Wheeler Atty at Law, Mauch Chunk, PA. I can also produce a certificate of examination form J H Sievers of Mauch Chunk. If you will be kind enough to forward me (at Summit Hill, Carbon Co. PA) a statement of the condition of the school, amount of salary given & length of time the school is to continue you will confer a favor and much oblige.
Yours Respectfully
