OFFICE OF THE TREASURER

ABBOT ACADEMY ANDOVER MASSACHUSETTS

[Stamp: Received DEC 27 1926 Answered 12/28 File Flagg re Sun]

December 5, 1926.

Dr. Alfred E. Stearns, Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass.

My dear Dr. Stearns:

I beg to enclose the draft in the sum of $239., being rebate on account of board for the unused portion of the second semester period on behalf of Mary Sun.

This amount should have been forwarded to you at an earlier period, but the large costs incurred during the summer and early fall have obliged the Treasurer to "go before the wind".

Respectfully yours,

Burton S. Flagg

Treasurer.

P. O. Box No. 93 Amherst, Mass. December 27, 1926

Dear Dr. Stearns:

When I came back from New York City last Saturday, I found in my room a little package, in which was a volume of Tennyson's "Idylls of the King", an exquisitely bound little book, a present from you! I value it; because it will serve as a memory of you when I go back to China and also because I value all good books. Please accept my heart thanks, Sir.

I did not like New York at all and was certainly glad when I got back to Amherst. I am quite sure now that I shall not move an inch from college in Easter vacation unless for some special reason. At present I am all alone in the Morrow Dormitory but happy.

Mary is in Springfield; I saw her before starting for New York.

Many good wishes to you and happy new year,

Faithfully yours,

Charlie Sun
