                          Poughkeepsie  June 23rd  1896
  Dear Louis,

    We have only a fighting chance to win.  The crews
    this  year are all better than usual.  Harvard is a big
    favorite.   Here they are backing her to win both
    races.  They will have to hustle in the Freshman race
    just the same.

                             Yours Sincerely,
                                       Chas. E. Courtney
