Chapel Hill 1. May 1862.

My dear Sir,

I have had repeated interviews with your son, since the receipt of your note, and have consulted Dr. Jones in relation to him
He seemed in better health and spirits yesterday than heretofore, and promised now to make an earnest effort to go on with his studies. He is intelligent and amiable and will I hope do well. I will pay particular attention to him, and give him permission to go home at any time, when his condition may seem to require such indulgence.

Yours very sincerely,

D. L. Swain

A. E. Henderson Esq.
