Commandantís Office
Navy Yard, New York
April 13th, 1894

My dear Mr. Ralph,

A friend of mine who has a country place is desirous of improving its appearance by planting some trees upon it.

His attention having been drawn in a catalogue published by B.A. Elliott & Co. of Pittsburgh to the beautiful condition of Mr. Davisí Dosoris Island, I venture to ask if you will kindly obtain a permit for myself and some friends, not more than four persons, to visit the Island.

Very Sincerely,
Bancroft Gherardi

Mr. J. Ralph
c/o The Sun
New York

Light age toning. Wear to the upper left corner of the letter sheet. Tiny tear at bottom edge.

Footnote: Dosoris Island, was first acquired in 1668 when Robert Williams purchased 1,000 acres from the Matinicock Indians, which included this island. It is located on Long Island Sound, New York, near the present day town of Glen Cove.
