Abstract
3 letters from Arnzen to Caroline and Abigail Slade (all three were VC Special Students from 1865-1866) while the sisters were still home in Fall River, Massachusetts. The letters describe student life in the first few months of the college. Arnzen encourages the sisters to join her at Vasssar, describing entrance examinations, food, and the building in glowing terms.
