a host of hidd boys, so you see we
do not lack for attendance but have
company to go with us any whare we
want to go Bert wants to know if
he cant put my Georgetown beau out

take just about a dozen such as him
to accomplish that. But went to

at our church, conducten by a minister
from Richmond Va Hatty Aubry

she has no pleasure unmixed
without thee as she often think how she
would like to have you along but
with a kiss
