تابستان و پاییز و زمستان و بهار طی شد و هنوز که هنوز است پا در هواست و قژ قژ جوشکاری و تق تق دیوار سازی برقرار است، نمی دانم روزه هستند یا نه ولی کار در زیر آفتاب گرم تابستانی آن هم دهان روزه واقعاً طاقت فرساست ؛ حتماً پاداشش هم ده برابر است .
Spring has come again! You should see how lovely the campus is. I think you might come and look at it for yourself. Master Jervie dropped in again last Friday--but he chose a most unpropitious time, for Sallie and Julia and I were just running to catch a train. And where do you think we were going? To Princeton, to attend a dance and a ball game, if you please! I didn't ask you if I might go , because I had a feeling that your secretary would say no. But it was entirely regular; we had leave-of-absence from college, and Mrs. McBride chaperoned us. We had a charming time--but I shall have to omit details; they are too many and complicated.
