My Dear Son,

…Sorry you are not settled so as you would have nothing to do but study. They are very high with room and board. You ought to form a club like Columbia and bring these women to time. There is no board or room worth that much. Just do the best you can. Don't worry if you do have to pay those high prices.…

Mall thought you did not get back very soon and I thought you had got back too soon.

I hope you keep looking well and soon weigh 150 lbs. You ought to have eat your chicken according to your bread. Sorry you did not have plenty to last till you got to Baltimore. Did it taste good?

Papa says we must go to the fair tomorrow and see the horse splash.

Your loving Mother
