´╗┐Dear Father and Pete:

I am glad Irene Mott approves of me, Pete--I surely do approve of her. Also, I do not know Mr. Morton Meyer well enough to know whether that is a compliment or a slam. Which is it?

The reading list is very interesting. I shall probably profit by it next summer. At present it is almost impossible to do the work which directly helps my assigned work.

I am going next hour to the discussion of Miss Haight, head of the Latin department, on the historical background of Electra, which is to be read by Edith Wynne Matthison.

I just came back from the Library, where I read "Celui Qui Epousa Une Femme Muette", the French Club Paly. I signed up for the tryouts. I ought to be able to do something with that, it seems to me.

Miss Thallon is back on the job today. I handed in my topic today.

I certainly am not feeling decent. Last night I could not make myself go down to dinner, but after resting and half-sleeping for two hours, I felt somewhat better.

Otherwise nothing new. The bell has rung for the next hour, so I must beat it.
