Athens Nov. 9th

Dear Brother

As Mr. Mitchell is going to start for Towanda to day, I thougt I would write you a line concerning my studies as he says you will not be here for more than a week.

My Philosophy Grammar & Arithmetic not being enough to keep me going I would ask your permission to Study either Latin or Bookkeeping.

I have no place to study in the evenings as the little ones at Mr. Herricks keep such a crying and talking that it’s impossible to read. There is a good fire place in my room and if you will just say the word I will have a fire in it at nights and learn something. When you come don’t forget my waistcoat at the tailors. there are several little articles which I need though I have no room to mention them. I must stop writing as I am very cold.

Your affectionate Brother
