November 22, 1919, From Mamma

Geneva, Nov. 22--‘19

Dear Esther--

Your letter came yesterday and I simply can not tell you what to do about coming home. But if you do come with Justine you must ‘phone or let us know some way that you are there or if you come the other way (Portland) you will have to let us know. Clark said that Luella wrote like they hardly expected to go to Purdue. Will have the corn-shredders Mon. if weather is fit which means I must get dinner for about 14 men. alone. Ruth will be in school and Mrs. W. is afraid of Wilma taking the measles. Clark is teaching the Freshmen English class. Says he likes it and would think it fine if he only knew more. But you know he does not understand grammar. Ruth says they all like him though. I think Mr. & Mrs. Willis do their part about as well as some of those pupils. Only one boy has quit school & he was going to anyway to Xmas time. Well, be your own judges about coming home. We will go meet you where ever you are, if you only tell us where.


Warren is doing fine.

Am afraid those pictures will get mislayed or lost.
