Dear Sir:

After thinking over our conversation of August 7, 1938 conĀ­
cerning a soft-ball game in behalf of the childrens' Picnic at
Lake storey, Sunday, August 14, 1938, and after reading your paper
it is felt by the boys of this Camp that you are trying to establish
some movements that will benefit the city of Galesburg. After due
consideration of the circumstances that surrounds this affair, please
be advised that we find that it will be a pleasure to donate our
services in playing a game in Galesburg on August 14, 1938.

The players and entire group of boys from this Camp will arrive
at Lake storey about 2:00 PM. If this is satisfactory to you, please
notify the undersigned accordingly.
