Abstract
85 letters from Adams to family, written between 1900 and 1902, and 1 letter from Flora A. Clarke to Ida, April 1901. Some of the letters are very brief notes or postcards. Adams' longer letters contain evocative landscape descriptions, references to student activities, orders for new clothing, and references to class examinations. She mentions preparations for the Washington's Birthday pageant, visits to Williams and West Point, and a skating carnival. She also speaks of the presidential election between McKinley and Bryan.
