LETTER FROM SIMS TO DUBOIS , MARCH 22 , 1927 ( ON BLUEFIELD INSTITUTE STATIONERY )
“ Dear Dr . DuBois ,
Replying to yours of March 17 , you can reach Bluefield at 1:15 Thursday April 7 . This train carries a sleeper coming through from New York without change of cars . You can leave here Saturday morning at 8 o ’ clock and be in Cincinnati the same evening or you can leave here at night and be in Cincinnati the next morning .
Instead both the addresses on ‘ Russia ,’ make the one at 11 o ’ clock in the morning on Negro Art and Literature .
Very truly yours , R . P . Sims
