No, I have not forgotten either you or your address. Was glad you remembered me. We are well started in our chool work. I have only (55) fifty-five in my department. It keeps me busy. I do not like the change in spelling work in second grade--I have not forgotten our pleasant time at Kossuth It has meant so much to me. Clara [sic]
