Dear Fran, They all have gone off to church but Sue and I and I thought I would write you a few lines. I must apologize for not writing before but I have not not had much time, at night I do not get home until about 6.30 and then after I get any supper I am too tired. You know from 6.45 to 6.30 are pretty long hours on a (growing) boy. (That reminds me, I was told today that I was growing like a weed.) We all got up to-day early and all went to church but Helen and Sue and we had the finest young minister from Huron College. Not a minister but he is training for one.

There certainly is a change over at the school the teachers and students are attending more to the school. They have organized a literary society over there and every two weeks we have a hour for debates and other things. Mr. Smith went down to Tilsonburg in the bandwagon with us and [Mr?] and Mrs. Smith came back in it. We sang all the old songs all the way back. Mrs. Smith is an expert at it. She is going to sing in the church next sunday night and Sue is going to assist at her reception a week from Tuesday. I walked up the street with Mrs. Bright last night and she told me she had just got a
