Dear parents; -

We purchased some paper when down town yesterday but it has not come yet so I use this.

I stayed here last night in G’s room.Mabel McCullum’s room mate has left college and she offered her bed any time.

The choral club concert was last night. They did nothing extra, but they haven’t the best voices in college in it. The best

voices are in the choir, - it takes too much time to belong to both. The college orchestra did fine tho. Mr. Nichols the soloist was good at first, but before he got thru the evening, he [flated?] [sp:flatted?], most of the time. The accompanist was great. She has taken Miss Wm’s place, sort of Prof Gow’s assistant, only she doesn’t play the organ.

Grace is to play at another student’s recital next Wed.

We got a cunning little letter from Esther Polly this A.M. all

the nicer because her mother didn't correct it.

Grace wants some “[sponduli?]”. Gee, mine’s most gone too, for “what with” (As Mrs. Yale says) my new jumper, [opr?]. gloves, paying G’s April bills etc I am most on my last dollar.

Field meet was to be this A.M. at 8.30,but as it rained most all night, it has been postponed until this P.M. at 2.

We wanted to take Harry to the guest’s table in Main for dinner,

but as the seats were all signed for we will go to the inn. Lots of girls take their men to guest table.

No letter from home, but remembered Mom & Wm were going to Valley Farm.

We at last remembered to ship off that dickey.

There are many visitors for over field day. Aunt L. was here a [crossed out: week] year ^ago. Della asked me last night if I remembered about it. Mr. Harris was along too.

Mom. have purchased your desired envelopes etc,
