To Whom it May Concern, This is to certify that J. Colón has been in my employ the last three years as porter and delivery boy. I have found him intelligent, honest, and mischevious.

Sorry not to have seen you before you left. How is everything going? Hope [illegible] been able to contact you. Please forgive the rush [illegible] love for all. Ed"
