My dear Auntie,
Why haven't you written to me? I have been here over two weeks and have heard from no one but Kittie.
I suppose your company have all departed by this time and I should think you would have time for writing letters.
I have two Latins, Greek and Ancient History. Of course the languages are hard and I
shall be very busy. I was put in Physical Geography but have been cramming on it for the last week and passed an examination in it yesterday.
I hope to be a full Freshman by Christmas.
I have had my room changed and room now on the fourth floor with Maggie Lemon [Margaret S. Lemon, ex-'76] We have an
Julia rooms on the same corridor that I do but it is on the south side while
There are plenty of orchards near the College so that we keep ourselves supplied with apples.
Are you going to Boston this winter? Please write soon for letters are always thankfully received.
With much love to Grandma and Annie I remain
Your loving neice
[Jennie A. Ladd, ex-'76]
