Joseph Denison wrote from Soldier Creek, Jackson County, K.T., to Isaac Goodnow. Denison reported on the construction of the Bluemont College building, advising him that the lower floor would need plastering before classes could be held there in the coming winter.

Denison also recommended that Goodnow see about purchasing a common seal for the Trustees of Bluemont College to use on legal documents.
