[Illegible] S. C.
April 20/98
Col. A. Coward

Dear Sir,
Your containing record [illegible] my son I. L. Sanders recd. In reply I beg to say that I am ready & willing to pay all [illegible words] against him. The charge for this quarter is all right but I do not understand the other charges, as I had paid all claims [illegible] to April 1st and besides my son says there are things in the bill he did not get. These I have marked with x. Please send corrected bill. Some of his clothes were left in [illegible], which you will please be kind enough to have sent by express.

I regret exceedingly the trouble at the Citadel. The boys acted very badly, but I must say, I think their [illegible] against Cantey was great, if I understand the thing correctly. There is no excuse for their behavior to you and other officers – except the youth and inexperience of some of them. My son stands ready to apologize to you for anything said or done.

Very Resly
T. P. Sanders
