Cool. Rainy. Rather nice, though. My hair looked positively grand. Your style of hairdressing certainly makes you feel different. No 12:15 class on account of picture show. Typed after school. Mary, ditto. Trying best to finish “House of 7 Gables” by Friday. Made 97 on English test. I wish Mary would study harder but telling her so doesn’t seem to do any good. Why? I haven’t figured that out yet.
