    June 23rd.

    Dear Bro

    I have sent you the Warrenton Flag, [illegible] [what?] you will find a [piece?] in reference to the late riot in Carlisle. I thought best to send it to you & if this be [untrue?] that is charged to [professor?] McClintock it [ought?] too be contradicted. I would mention [him?] [illegible] or that two weeks ago this same paper published a letter [illegible] Prof. McClintock from all [illegible] [illegible] by all the southern students. The Editor of this paper is a southern Methodist & this is a [illegible] of their [sender/tender?] [illegible] towards us. I thought I would send you this & leave it to your own judgment what course to pursue.

    As ever yours,
    G. D. Chenoweth
