Stowe Vt.April 9, 1887.My dear Katie;

I am going to take the first opportunity of answering your letter this time I was very glad to get it. I like very much to hear from Johnson. I don't hear as often as I would like to any way. I don't find any fault with you you are prompt and write just as you promised me that you would, but I think

there are some others who might write if they chose. I have one other correspondent there and I get a letter from them occasionally which of course is very welcome. I don't quite dare to tell you who it is just now, though perhaps you can guess. I was awful blue when I wrote you the last letter but I have got all over it now.

I did not intend to write anything in my letter that would show how blue I was but I guess I forgot myself.

Tell Mr. Bugbee I should have liked to have seen him teaching in the model school. I think he must have put on some dignity. You know he used to some times especially the night of the C reception.

How did Miss Perry get along teaching the young ideas? What is it, Kate, that always makes the A's & B's so jealous of each other? I see that they are just a little this term by your letter. The A's and B's this year are so very nice

that of course there is not much feeling.

How does Mr. Norton get along this term, I have not heard you say anything about him. I expect he is just as odd as he always and just as much of a favorite. I am going to try to go up to Johnson at the close of school because I want to hear my class speak. I don't expect that Mr. Norton will stand on one leg at the B exhibition. I have taken a school for the year. I think I have got a pretty good chance.

The school is not a large one but it is a village school the school house is real nice and not quite a mile from the post office and churches so I can go out about as much as though I was right in the village.

I shall get $3.00 a week besides my board.

Please let me know when your school closes.

Will all the B's be able to pass the examinations this turn. If they do there must be a large A class next term.

Your loving Friend,Nida E. George.

P.S. I never had such a time writing a letter as I have this one. There has been everything going on. I guess it is barely sensible. I expect to do lots of flirting this summer. Nida.
