Abbie B., age 22, Pennsylvania

Mailed the last pages of my journal to you last Saturday with four other letters.  Saturday by the way – was my twenty second birthday.  Age is creeping up on Mollie, but I fear it does not bring the expected wisdom with it.

I did not go home Fri., as have had no mail for over a week.  This is a snowy Monday, I have but 8 scholars today.
