John C. Daves letter to C. K. Hill, October 23, 1925
Mr. Daves tells Mr. Hill that Jim Tarwater Wright's application to the Society of the Cincinnati is in good order, the amount of a life membership, and tells him that Colonel Peter Dozier probably served in the militia, not the Continental Army.

W. CHAMPLIN ROBINSON, PRESIDENT WM. K. BARTLETT, VICE-PRESIDENT JOHN C. DAVES, SECRETARY THE TRUSTEES OF THE SHEPPARD AND ENOCH PRATT HOSPITAL 212-214 CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, BALTIMORE, MD. (stamped) OCT 23, 1925 My dear Mr. Hill, I am in receipt today of your letter of the 21st inst., enclosing the application of Mr. Jim Tarwater Wright, which seems to be in good shape. In answer to your question the cost of a life membership under a Rule of 1854 right is $100. There is no Dozier in the Continental Line, Colonel Peter Dozier was likely an officer in the militia, and as such he was not entitled to membership in the Society of the Cincinnati.
