Dear Mother + Father:

The rush is not letting up - it is increasing! Me for a day to sleep, Dec. 18.

I got [alit] of [invitation] from A.G. (same as last year) to the Black and White[sauce] Jan. 1. I don't know if he was trying to be funny or if it is the thing to do, to say that the dance is being planned, etc., and that it will afford him very great pleasure if he could have my company! That is all...It strikes me it is somewhat stiff, but [I guess] it is his idea of humor. I'll accept, unless you have some reason to the contrary. R.S.V.P.



We had debate practice last night again - more today.
