Dear General Marshall

Because of the many demands which were made upon our contributors during the past year, many of them have been forced to reduce their contributions to Tuskegee Institute more than half-some cannot contribute at all.

We are trying to raise money this Fall to offset this loss. If we can get enough small contributions from old and new friends, they will take the place of large ones. Twenty-five cents or fifty cents or a dollar will help a student here.

We shall be very grateful for any amount that you may send.

Yours sincerely,
