Mr. Stein,
Douglas Theatre,
Macon, Ga. [Georgia]
Dear Mr. Stein:

Would you be good enough to give me a little advice as to where I can get a good colored picture, just about what it will cost me, and any thing [anything] more you think would be of help to me.

Had to go to Atlanta this week so did not get over for the fight, but I sure will come over for one sometime.

Yours very truly,]
[Signed] [written text: A. H. Yeomans.]
