Mr. Goudy's3 death.

Always felt that Mrs. Case4 gave me the first help I ever got, and then came you1 and Mr. Goudy and old Mr. Ducker.5 "This pull of being so far from home and my first friends never grow any easier."

She had given up High School work and accepted the Associate Managing Editorship of McClures.6 Loves the work—very trying because of heavy responsibility, but "more interesting and stimulating than I ever suppposed any work could be." Kindness of Mr. McClure7

(Mrs. Alice E. D. Goudy)
