´╗┐April 16
Dear Mother, Father, and Pete:

I think you ought to make A plus working on the railroads, Pete. A great job.

I am sorry to say that I still feel quite badly, and that I had the same difficulty in goingto sleep last night that I had the night before. I don't know what I have done or eaten that I should not have. It certainly is not encouraging.

The English Speech class play last night was very good┬╗ I like classical underworld stuff, and there was enough in it. There were only four actors in it, and they are the four best in the college.

In case you should be talking to the doctor, you can tell him how I feel and see what he has to say about it-

I saw Lucy for a few minutes last night- She seems to be quite worried about her father.
