´╗┐Dear Father and Pete:

All I have to report today is a day wasted yesterday and a lot to do today before leaving. I fooled around outdoors all yesterday afternoon and went to see an excellent gymnastic demonstration in the outdoor theater by ten picked men of the Czech Sokol. It was well worth seeing. I had every intention of working last night, but various people came in to see me and before I knew it the evening was gone. I guess I shall have to start doing as I did last year and do most of my work in the library.

Your long letter came Pete, to my surprise, and proved to be very interesting.

I wish you a very happy New Year, Father. I am sorry that we cannot be together, but I guess you will be busy enough with the double services not to miss me! I hope that the party you plan for the near future will come off as well as possible, and otherwise I do not know what to wish you!



Sept. 30.
