Mr. Coronel

Asbury Coward

Sir:

I have the pleasure of including a money order of $14.00 Currency, which according to a letter I received from my brother Francisco Alba I can send to you for repayment of the summer clothes you had bought for this brother I refer to.

I request that you tell me if the conditions may be that my stated brother remains at the Academy during the coming vacations, since I do not want him to return to this Island until he has finished his studies.

I repeat to you attentively,

José Perpiñán
