My dear Mattie,
I thought I would write you a little note and send with the invitation for Class day, as I want to tell you about it.
I thought it might be pleasant to you to have some one of your friends to accompany you, so I left room on the card for you to place a brother’s, a sister’s, a cousin’s, or anybody’s name, whom
Class day we (our class) sit together and as I shall be occupied before the service I may not be able to receive you in the parlor when you come. If I am not there when the guests begin to go to the Chapel, I would advise you to go up so that you may get a good seat. After the [...ating?] of the [tree?] I shall hope to see you. I have the promise of few friends, so the attention I give to each will necessarily be limited.
Trusting you will be present next Tuesday,
E. S. Curtis
