Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee

Cold, cloudy, windy. Hardest history exam ever. Latin not so hard. Typing made 92 on first test, 61 (!) on second. Didn’t have to hand in second one. Finished reading Latin material in study hall. Finished typing. Everything went wrong today. Music lesson — Mrs. Marsh still slightly on war path. Worked on and completed Latin booklet — have had six weeks. Just like me to leave things to the last minute! Joe Posey came at night and took two pictures of me for Chattanooga Free Press — me and my poem. Help! To bed late. Pop to Legion meeting. Hate to think of test grades.
