"The Cooks" 1808 Chapel Hill Road Durham, North Carolina Telephone: 7-4134 March 8, 1950

Mrs. W. C. Niemeyer 620 Park Avenue Portsmouth, Virginia

Dear Mrs. Niemeyer, Last December I spoke to you about my approaching interneship at the U. S. Naval Hospital at Portsmouth, and my need for an apartment or house.

My interneship begins April 3, 1950, and I will be in Portsmouth March 20 or 21 to find an apartment to move into as soon after that date as possible.

The family consists of myself, wife, and our only child, 3 1/2 months old. Our present landlady, Mrs. W. R. Murray, at this address, will be glad to give us glowing recommendations. WE have lived with her for the past four years.

Ideally, we should like two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, and bath, all on one floor. We would prefer a house or apartment in which the kitchen furniture is furnished or completely unfurnished place.

Thanking you in advance for your help, I hope to see you about March 20 or 21. Sincerely, [signature] John Cook John Cook
