Letter from T. Henry Randall to James W. Allison regarding upcoming visit to Richmond.


Aug. 4th '94. My dear Mr. Allison, I have [next word interlined with a caret] been looking over the time-table, and think it likely that I can get away from Baltimore Monday evening about seven o'clock reaching Richmond at mid-night and [thus canceled] thus spending the time travelling that would be of no use otherwise. That will give me all of Tuesday to go over your house and settle a number of important matters. Of course you will not think of meeting me this time, and I shall find my way to some Hotel where I am sure of getting a comfortable rest. If you care to communicate with me in Baltimore on Monday address me in care of R. Brent Keyser, Keyser Building. Your's truly T. H. Randall. [ALS, T. H. Randall to James W. Allison, August 4, 1894, on letterhead: Griffin & Randall Architects 48 Exchange Place New York.] [edited by WDC]
