Dearest Mother -
It’s not that there’s any news that I’m writing tonight - but merely to let you know that I’m alive and kicking. I had a special delivery from Dorothy Parker today saying she wouldn’t be here till tomorrow - so we’re hoping to see then. It has poured most of the day as I was simply dead tired I stayed in bed all morning and cut chapel-service. This evening I went to hear a lecture that was a rabid denunciation of Mormonism. I won’t endeavor to give even a summary of his talk, but I’ll simply say
It doesn’t seem possible that examinations are so imminent. If my letters hereafter are sparse and scattered in both number and news, don’t be surprised, for I have got to work like everything to pay up for not getting the work done in vacation that I had planned. My story is due this week, my Philosophy topic next and incidentally I have my sonata to finish writing to say nothing of my other work - German alone is enough to make me shake in my boots at he mere thought.
Glad. Lyall came over here after the lecture and as we are in the same German class in the [morn]we did manage to get our reading done together, but I haven’t touched
