[state seal] VIRGINIA SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA HOUSE OF DELEGATES RICHMOND. D. H. PITTS ALBEMARLE COUNTY AND CITY OF CHARLOTTESVILLE SCOTTSVILLE, VA.
Scottsville, Va Decr 24/15 Miss Eugenia Hubbard University Va. My dear Miss Hubbard On my return home last night I found your valued favor of 21st inst and in reply thereto I beg to say that I am heartily in favor of establishing a Co-ordinate College for women at Charlottesville Va.
I want to suggest that in my opinion the most helpful work the friends of the College (to be) can do, will be to get in touch with any member of the Legislature [thru?] the influential men and women of the respective counties constituents or friends. This will make the labor in Richmond much easier, as many of these men do not know there is any demand for such an Institution.
Yours very truly D. H. Pitts
