You may remember I sent you a paper about dentistry. I have been doing my sums and I think if I continue to teach for two more years I will have enough for my fees an another $400.00 to put out at interest to keep me and I would hold back $50.00 for clothes and other expenses. I want to get a warm cape, muff and storm collar next winter. I want it of seal so that will take some more of my money. Got my navy outfit and it looks very nice indeed so I am wearing it now and sparing the black and the plaid outfits.
Since Pa got a new horse the boys bring me halfway here so that on Sunday mornings I ride with them to Church. I had a book lent me, “Illustrated Notes of English Church History”, by one who is deeply interested in the welfare of the Church and who tries to get more members for that denomination. I fear he may be interested in me rather more than my opinions for the book. He is at the school waiting for me when classes end. What should I make of that?The book was intended to prove the question that the Church was not losing any of its dignity, etc. It was, I thought too much about slighting the other churches to suit my taste. Have you seen it? It costs 35 cents a volume and there are two.
I will tell you more about the Reverend Mr. Black in another letter, but I must mail this now to catch today’s post. Please write soon and tell me what you think about the dentistry question, I am determined to get a good paying profession.
My best to all your family,
