Nonsense about trouble—I'd build a house to have you!My Dearest Dorothy1;
I write hastily at school3. Cant you throw your Pittsburgh2 visit earlier? School begins on the second of January, and I am afraid I cant get a substitute. You see for 30 years before I came here English was only a two hour a week study, and counted as only a half study. It was because of me in one way and another that they made it a three hour study and a full study this year. As its the first year of that system its "up to me," and I've got to see it through. That is why I cant skip.
However, we'd have all day Saturday & Sunday and all the other days after
oclock. But the picture exhibit4 which
2 is most
interesting closes Jan. 1st and it's just a shame to miss it. I've
counted on seeing it with you.
Of course any
me, but when there is so much to do and so
little time it seems a shame to come on the very day school begins. I dont want you to run any chance of
beeing being ill on the train though. Let me hear at once Dear
Girl, and remember how much I want and need you.
