[Addressed to Hotel Traymore]

Dear Mother, Father, and Pete:

I have four minutes before the first bell to write to you. I have four classes this morning and then I go to the Lodge for lunch, as Mrs. Kaufmann is here today. After that I must get a good start on my history topic for Friday.

Lab was punk yesterday. I certainly am disgusted.

After lab I went to hear Dr. Laidher, I have not yet found out who he is, except that he is a socialist. I knew Prof. Mills would ask tomorrow how many of us went. Besides which, he was very interesting.

I have to prepare for Speakers' Bureau tonight, too.

I went to Dr. B. last night again, and then came back in the hope of getting a good long sleep. Sure enough, we had a fire drill to wake me, and then about an hour later Lathrop had one to wake me again. That is luck.

Well, my time is up.



October 26, 1920.
