July 5, 1909.
My dear Townsend:
I have referred to the Assistant Secretary of War your letter of July 4th, making inquiry about Alport's army record. I hope he will send you, as I have requested, information suitable for your purposes. I quite agree that it would be appropriate for us to put up a tablet in his honor.
With many kind regards, I remain, always,
Henry H. Townsend,
69 Church Street,
New Haven, Connecticut.
