I myself answered the enclosed letter yesterday telling him that you had nothing suitable which was not already in print and could not possibly prepare anything in time. But I get a letter from him today (written of course before receiving mine.) begging me to forward his to you,— so I do it to satisfy him! He knows how busy you are and I feel indignant with him for teasing you with such requests.
By the way did you get your salary checks, and did you sign and return them to the bank? I note that your account when you left was $305.00. I have had to pay $200.00 in physical culture bills, $32.00 to Prof. Phillips, besides a number of smaller bills, so unless that money has been deposited I have overdrawn the account. But I have about $30.00 in cash. There are only two signed checks left so I will send a few for signature in case of need. One item was an advance to Maggie of half wages because they are building a house on Bank St. which is to be rented to a professor! Does'nt it seem funny? Have just had a note from Miss Hopkins in answer to mine asking what I owed her for any private lessons; she says she did not give me lessons but only advice & “advice has cost nothing since the world began”, – rather neat, eh?
There is not further news from Stockton indeed no news of any sort. The wonderful weather still lasts and I will get out today and enjoy it. Yesterday afternoon was really farcical,– six visitors while I was trying to scribble that little note to you. I finally escaped at six o'clock! What a comfort it will be to have a “day” next winter! It must give one a delicious sense of security when one is at work.
No letter from my darling this morning but I can hardly expect regularity under the circumstances.* All well and very cheerful, and I love you, love you with all my soul.
*Did not notice this until me letter was begun
