John Pipher, writing from Manhattan, Kansas Territory, composed this letter to J.J. Davis and a Dr. Valtier, expressing his own enthusiasm for the creation of Bluemont Central College, hoping to elicit their support as well. Pipher anticipated that the College would attract "men of families and of wealth" to the area, which would stimulate growth and trade enough so that the College would pay for itself within one year.
