My dear Parents;
Since my last letter I have heard nothing from you- I don't think it pays to write you three time in one week for I have not rec'd even one letter. Howard was kind enough to favor me, as he acknowledged, partly to escape a scolding so on the whole I don't feel very much flattered. Last Friday evening we had a union meeting of the three Chapters in the Society Hall - which was very enjoyable- It was not as the other meeting usually are - but rather a social gathering the exercises of the evening were all literary, and after they
were all over we were invited to a very handsome entertainment given by the Committee. We then finished the evening with a dance. The next morning immediately after Silent time a meeting of the Students Association was called for the election of officers for the ensuing year. We had a dreadful time, were there the whole morning went and only elected the Pres. & Vice Pres.- Immediately after dinner we had a meeting of Philalethean and the officers wore chosen without any trouble after that the Junior & Sophomore Classes had their elections. As you are not acquainted with the young ladles who fill the offices I will only mention that Miss Monroe Is
President of the Students
whole. It is one of the smartest In College- and by far the honor list. Next Saturday evening the Sophs are going to give us our party & the same evening the Juniors give the Seniors theirs. If nothing happens I Intend to
From your affec- Daughter
