Transcript

Dear Pitt-;
I’m sorry that we must separate. But it is right & necessary that we should. Literary pursuits must, for a while, be abandoned; so that we may learn the tactics of military & be prepared to meet & repel the enemy, who have sworn that we shall no longer be freemen!!
Wherever your lot may be cast, Pittman, I beg you to remember that you have the best wishes of

Your friend & roommate.
