Abstract
1 letter from Cornell to her father. She asks for information about a men's college that her father is involved with. She gives a detailed and favorable impression of the morality of Vassar, concluding that most of the students are Christian and become closer to their faith during their time at the college. She also describes the importance of her Christianity and her own growing connection with religion. Cornell relates an accident with the scaffolding of the Gymnasium, badly injuring four workers.
