Date Wednesday, April 28, 1875

Raining–raining, and our funds are dwindling–dwindling. Tomorrow we change our base and will “on to Richmond,” and may possibly play there Friday also. We hope to come back with money in our purse. By letter sent to Mr. Appolonio this A.M. you will learn the state of our funds. I am sorry, but owing to circumstances over which we have no control, with the greatest reluctance we call for a remittance to pay hotel bill. Should this rain continue we will need $200. I shall have to borrow money to purchase our round trip tickets to Richmond. We had hoped to get them for $6.50 each, but we could not reach there in time to play, so must go by another route. I hope we will do better there than in this city. No good here. [letter from Harry Wright writing in Washington to Frederick Long, dated April 28, 1875]
