you recieved the letter but as you have
had no time to answer it. I am now
studying Moral Science and Logic. The
former I like very well but the latter
is rather difficult. I take of Proffessor
again this time. I am one of the lucky
ones he gave up most all of his old
scholars and took others. only keeping
two or three of his old ones and I
happened to be one. I am so glad
of it for it has been the changing of
teachers so much that has kept
me back. I have time for another
practice hour if you want me to take
it. it will be about five dollars ($5.00) extra
charge. Pa I will have to ask you for
more money I had to get me some
paper, envelopes, postage stamps &c with
what you gave me. and want to get
me some shors a present for Ria, am
going to give it to her on her birthday.
and want to get some photographs taken
to exchange with the girls as this is
