As you wished for me to write you a letter to remember me by I will do so.
I am up in my room writing this letter.
I hope our Picnic will pass of plesantly I am going to try to do my best & hope will not forget what times we had going up to practis.
I will tell you that you have been a good teacher &
that I have got hold of things & understood it
better than any teacher I ever went to school too, you may not think that this
is true but I do
and you may think that your task was a good one in District No 12.
I hope that we may remain friends as long as we both live and when our time comes for us to die we may both meet in Heaven together.
I will bid you Good Night for it is my bed time.
Your Friend & PupilMarion Cornell

We are going to speak pieces and dialogues we are going to meet with another school up in Chaly's Powell's woods. This term I took four studies Arithmetic, Reading, Physiology, and Spelling.
