My dear Jim,

            My Mother concludes not to take your offer of $1,000, and will be obliged if you will make arrangements to vacate the premises at "Chimborazo House" on the 16th November, next ensuing. As your contract requires, she wishes the house &c put in the condition in which you received them. She will not require the "dead-house," in the garden, to be removed at the expense of the Confederate States Government & does not wish it removed, at all, if you, or the Government be inconvenienced thereby.

Very Truly Yours,
              R. H. Gordon(?)

Dr. Jas. B. McCaw
Chimborazo Hospital
