Dear Mother + Father: May 12.

I am very busy today and do not feel particularly well so the [sooner] I get there with my work the better. The next to the last long theme of the year is due tomorrow (in [English?]).

I spoke to Miss Wells. My doubts probably seem silly, but so many people have volunteered the information that soph. math is a waste of time. I am going to take it on the theory that what you want benefits you.

I saw Miss [Landon] over at the lab. yesterday. Professor [Draullan] was away. She says it would be absolutely ridiculous for me to take baby chem again. I explained fully my position, as to understanding of the subj. etc., and she still said it would be absurd to repeat it. I don't even have to take an exam. She course reviews until Thanksgiving Vacation. [Are] you com-ing for your reunion?
