Dear Mother and Father,

I have another inspiration today about English. I just discovered last night that Argumentation is open to sophomores. I thought that you had to have a writing course as a prerequisite. Lucy says it is a fine course, she is sorry she did not take it. Also, most of the people who take it make debate!!!!! What is your idea on the subject? R.S.V.P., immediately. I must confess it appeals to me loads more than critical writing. That is sort of a duty course, but argumentation appeals to me. Also I was talking to [2 people] who took Crit. Writ. + they both said it was not what it is cracked up to be. Do you think it (argumentation) is worth giving up the fun of math next yr for? I think [I do].

[And then] - you know me and [debate]. R.S.V.P. I must hurry to get this letter off.

I don't think III Hall will be tonight - it is raining. I'll write a [real] letter this aft.
