In a series of three letters, the first being from a son to his parents and the second and third being to Stone, the Halstead family writes concerning grades and Christmas holidays. In the letter home to his parents, the son writes about how he has been studying but did not have time to study the last four chapters before being called to boards. He says that he failed and is now in fear that he will be sent back to prep school. In the second letter, the mother, C. M. Halstead writes to Stone asking him not to send her son back to preparatory school as it will discourage him. In the third, C. M. Halstead writes to Stone regarding Christmas holidays. She thinks that it is unfair that the students will not be given a break as so many children look forward to coming home for this time of year. October 19, 1899, October 26, 1899, December 3, 1899.
