Mound Bayou, Mississippi, Sep. 5, 15 Dear Teacher: I'm sorry you will not be back this year. I asked Rev. Lanless about you last week. I am not going back this year but I am expecting to take a year or two in College there. James Hargrove will not be there this term either. I don't think there will be anything to the commercial department this year. Minnie is planning for her graduation also [?] Holmes. Where is Miss Pray? A. S. Webster
