Dear Student,

I have another plan for you, see if you like it. For you to come to my class with your friend and let me teach you the method of teaching, and then for you to get students and I will do my part behind the curtain toward preparing the same, as I did when my husband taught and do it for you gratuitously; until you can grow into “the fullness of the stature”Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: I will wait until Thursday next for the class to commence and perhaps your friend can come then and you with him. If neither of you can come at that time I think you could come in after the first seven days, and I would begin over again; this I dislike very much, but I will do anything that is not wrong to foil those friends of ours and save any honest man from their toils Be sure and include Mrs. C.Editorial Note: Probably Clara E. Choate—in your defense she works fiercely in your direction to turn you against me

In Love and Truth
M B G E

N. B.Editorial Note: Nota Bene I am almost crazed with calls for the house and business of every sort

I searched in vain for that paper I am sincerely sorry you should have so much trouble but that is no remedy
