Post-Bureau Letters (1869-1870)

After the close of the Staunton Bureau office, several administrative matters still needed to be completed. There were also several letters, over a span of two years, that made their way to Bureau officials and the Superintendent of Education about the state of schools in Augusta County. This section comprises correspondence sent after the official close of the Bureau in December 1868.
