Jan. 14, 1920.

Dear Mother + Father:

I am extremely busy today. I am going to lab for an extra two hours, as I don't want to have so much the last minute before exams. I still have a good deal to do on this week's history topic.

Had a Spanish confer-ence this morning.

Am sending my laundry today.

Had a letter from Aunt Hattie today, in which she [advised] me to take all the [snap] courses + no hard ones henceforth! I wonder what she thinks you come to college for.

Your new picture reposes on my desk, Father. It is growing on me - in fact I think it is quite good, now that I have gotten used to the fact that my Paps isn't as beautiful as I once imagined. Love. Fannie
