Dear Father:

So you're coming anyhow! I do hope you won't be dis-appointed! It's terribly ex-citing. Some of the committee saw us off + Peggy [Higgins] came down along to meet the Holyoke people. I wish I could be in both places. Miss Ellery + Miss [Gibson] (Ec Holyoke Alum) are giving parties.

I don't know the time of the debate - I guess 8 o'clock. Neither do we know the name of the hall, but it's at Barnard. We practice tomorrow A.M., go to theater P.M. I want to see you as much as possible, but I'll have to be careful about courtesy, etc., in regard to their hospitality. You [know]

[Barnard] + V.C., [stand] on rather shaky ground in their relations to each other - + I can't [augment it].

Come up after breakfast + hear us practice - I wish you would - + see how my economics sounds to you ("representative of the un-[professored] audience".) I'll call you up at the Com. before we start ^debate practice, but don't wait for that if you get in sooner - you call me at Barnard; + say I'm with the V.C. Deb. team. I'd like to see you at lunch if you don't come before in the morning - but I can't say anything definitely now. Be sure to have no expression on your face at the debate

Loads of love to [Beurp],
Big Log.
