advantage. Therfore let both Helen and alfred get more of this natural advantage to imibe unconsciously practical English as American children do. I console myself that it is better for Alfred to have 100% in Deportment and 65% in English than to have 65% in Deportment and 100% in English. I think you agree with me. General McClellan was always at the head of his class while General Grant was at the bottom of his. Some excel in study and some in practical matters. I do not entertain such high hopes of Alfred but I will give him every opportunity to improve. I will be patient with him and take things philosophically.
