I should be much indebted to you if you could warn your readers agaisnt some swindlers who is touring the Country and professing to be any representative. He has some story of a school of literature and extract dollars by some a promise of epistolatory lessons. I have heard from at least two people who have received visits from them him, one of whom was so deceived that he wrote me a reproachful letter, which drew my attention to the matter.

With apologies for troubling you.
Yours faithfully
