By Land, Sea, and Air

I had the misfortune about 2 years ago to lose two children on the railroad, one a child of 3 years old was killed at Michigan City, the other, a young man of 21, was a brakeman on the Road and was killed at this place. I have frequently been advised by professional men to sue the company for damages but have no wish or desire to do so, but I think it not amiss for me to apply for an occasional free pass on the RR. Myself and family wished to visit some friends in Jackson, Michigan. We have received a free pass as far as Lafaette, which (station) application on representation of the circumstances has been freely granted us. If you will grant us a pass from Lafaette to Jackson we shall be much obliged. For proof of what I have stated I can refer you to the Robberts, and others at Michigan City.



Yours respectfully,

Horace Colegrove.



Instead of immediately granting this modest request, somebody scrawled in pencil on the bottom of the letter, "Robert - what about this case?"
