March 20th. 1896. My Darling, No letter from you today as I had two yesterday - This is the last one I shall write you to Oak Park so must make it a long one. Will sent me his photograph today I do not think it good, but it was very sweet of him to send it to me. I had a good lesson today after which I went shopping and this afternoon accompanied Natalie to have her picture taken.
You will get this Monday the day before you start, dear love, and I shall leave it open so as to add a few lines in answer to the one I shall receive from you tomorrow morning - Clarence, you really had better stay over Easter Sunday You can make up work afterward, I will not claim your time; but we will save our long chats until that lazy week before you graduate. So, stay, my dear love, by all means. That will
give you nearly 2 weeks vacation from Tues. night until the 2nd Monday morning. Now, Possum, goodnight - Your Sunshine My dear loving Clarence, this is Saturday morning and I have just read your Thursday night letter. Dr. Lewis is indeed a true friend. Why, Clarence, didnt you know that Nettie sent him an introduction to me; she wrote and asked if she might, and of course I acquiesqued (cant spell it). I thought, of course, I told you at the
time - but must have overlooked it. You will see by the letter I enclosed yesterday from Will - that he shares Nettie's opinion - but, darling, never fear; your opinion, and desire, are what concern me, most. But, you see, looking at it from the standpoint of your sister having introduced him, it is not the same thing as tho he had picked me up - some where by chance, which I suppose you imagined. Now, my sweetheart, goodbye till you get to Dixon, where I shall probably welcome you - Your own loving Girlie
