Mary wrote this letter to her parents on an unspecified day. Since she used one sheet of Tea House stationery, it is likely that it was written in 1926. Handwritten in black ink, the text covers the front and back of the cream-colored stationery. In this note, Mary mentions that she may have failed two exams and that one of her professors was impressed with her course note book.
Dear Folks. Flunked Greek & Alg. exams I know but maybe not the courses. I hope not. But here’s some wonderful news. Just came from my 5 minute oral exam and this is what Dr. Mateer said when I finished.
“I saw your wonderful note book “ “ Its something to be mighty proud of. That’s
a gift. It was not only the best in the classes this year but one of the very best I have ever seen. Your classwork does not measure up to lab work. Perhaps I’ll get a B in the course. Heres hoping.
I’m rather excited. That from Dr. Mateer!
