September 3, 1917. Miss Virginia S. McKinney, Richmond, Va. Dear Miss McKinney; I am not much acquainted in most of this county and can not, therefore, suggest the names of as many persons as you would like for your work. Two names occur to me just now as being very suitable, Mrs. Walter Dickinson, Castlewood and Mrs. Burns, wife of Judge Wm. E. Burns, Lebanon. If these ladies will serve I am sure you will find them satisfactory. Yours very truly, H. M. Cooper.
