A letter of John Van Vleck to A.C.V.R. Van Vleck purchased some textbooks for the academy and is raising funds for the academy. He hoped to contact [James A. H.] Cornell; he has been in contact with Rev. Garretson of the board. He bargained a bit with A.C.V.R. telling him that he, Van Vleck, had a job offer in New Jersey for a salary of $1200 to $1500 plus a rent-free home. Therefore, he would like as raise of $100, asking for $900 instead of getting $800.
