17. First Cor. South.
Why Bells, it is almost a month since your letters were received, and I have not written you a word! I wonder what you think of me ? I am sure I do not see where the days go - they actually fly. It does not seem possible that I have been here five weeks tomorrow! I suppose it seems like two months to those on the mountain. Oh! Belle, Sam was home last Sunday and Monday - would'nt I like to have been there too- it is over six weeks since I have seen him. I wonder if he will come up to the "Reception" - I hope so! I do not see what made you think
from "Sunset Hill? " - I was up there this morning; the country looked very lovely in its autumnal dress, and in the distance I could Just discern the grand Catskills - are'nt they magnificent, so blue, and never-changing. In a few weeks when all these pretty leaves and flowers are gone, and cold
not see either Sam or Belle on my way here, so did not bid them "good-bye "-was'nt it too bad? Sam was in Princeton, and Belle inMilford. I had to take care of myself you see - well, it was all right till I reached Poughkeepsie - I came by cars, knowing I should not feel well if I
disappeared before the kindness of Mrs Weeks who was so good to me- I shall never forget it. The next morning I reluctantly left my friends, and arrived here about nine- after a tedious waiting of nearly six hours I was conducted to my room- I went through the examinations, then to the President where a crowd already waited; before my turn came the bell for dinner sounded, and I was obliged to go with all this anxiety on my mind- I did not eat much I assure you Belle! I do not remember ever being so tired
Have'nt I written you a long letter?Please write soon, and tell me all the "Lasell-news". I wish I could see you old girl - good-bye
Good night, Julie
