I thought I would write your a few lines today.  Today is Saturday but I am in the college just the same.  The college is opened Saturdays to all who want to come in and study.  I just come up to finish Feb in my Bookkeeping and as I have it finished I thought I would write you.


Patsy Malone is down here and so is Mart Hughes today.  Well, you will think this is scratching so it is, but it is all done by muscular movement.  We have to write that way.  Altogether I like it better than the finger movement.  I have got Jan. and February all posted and it balances all right.  Mr. Rathbun is a good teacher.  He is all get there.


Good by, Write Soon,

 Xxx Mart.
