Justin Smith Morrill to Matthew H. Buckham, August 20, 1883
Strafford, Vt. Aug 20th, 1883
My dear Sir:
I have been trying to get a
Student for you this year, but thus far have
failed, unless you have a scholarship at
your disposal. If you have, I should like
to commend your favor a young man of
excellent character who will prove to be a
good scholar. His parents have not much
means but are trying to find some way
to put him through Dartmouth.
Very truly yours
Justin S. Morrill
Prst. M. H. Buckham,
Vt. Un. & State ag. coll.
