November 24, 1919, From Richard

November 24, 1919

Dear Esther,

This is not going to be much of a letter; nor much of an answer, I fear. Sure I like specials, and that is one reason I cannot find the time to write more tonight. Various things have interfered with my good intentions, thus nessitating a hasty answer or none at all. For if I waited until tomorrow you would not be at I.U. by the time my mail reached you.

Esther, I'm sure your friendship has benefited me also; but do friendships always continue to be beneficial. Supposing, since you mentioned it, that the things I said really did mean what it sounded like. Would you care? Since there is such a short time I shall not take up the discussion any farther at present. I would not know how to explain anyway so sas to please you, so I'm not relieving your uncertainty now. You will surely have a fine time when you go home, and I wish you one anyway. So far as I know now Purdue will have school. Hard luck, I say. I shall write more soon, perhaps. I can't depend upon my "spells". So if you are O.K. where you're at write to me.

Yours Truly,
