As my fortune is usually favorable, I received your last letter at Purdue Friday just before leaving for Indianapolis. However as I was rather rushed I could not read it until I was on my way. You see I had classes all afternoon until 4:00 o'clock and my train left at 4:22. That is the reason I can write now from home.
I certainly appreciate your kindness in considering me so important; but which do you think you'll get the most good out of in the finals, your lessons or me? Anyway a person who does not want to get any letters is certainly peculiar. That is not like you, or myself. Is it? Speaking of professors, I do not have much time for my "profs" or care very much whether I like them or not. If they are good, so much the better, but if they are bad it makes no difference. I had prof. Mathers in room 28, front row, 2nd seat from the west end of center row. Lab was upstairs, in 33, I believe.
I have been having a very busy time since getting home at 9:30 Friday night. I came by way of Indianapolis to Portland. Saturday morning Papa and I went to Portland with the car. We took your father part way. Mr. Munro was going thru La Fayette on the L.E. & W. to Illinois. It would have been very fine if I had been going that way at the same time.
They did not
I wish to announce the wedding of Mr. J. Miller today with a fair dame from east of Geneva.
This is the first time I have been home when you were away and of course it seems quite unnatural. I'll have to make the best of it however. I am going back to Purdue some time tonight thru Indianapolis. Perhaps I can write a better letter soon.
P.S. I realize this letter betrays haste. Please pardon me.
