Dear Miss Sabin:
The recent high honor that has come to you is indeed gratifying to the host of your friends.
It only seems a day or so ago that you were showing us the intricacies of the internal workings of fish, frogs, polliwogs and snakes in those happy days at Lake Geneva.
And now to realize the heights to which our estimable teacher has risen!
Always cordially,
Theodore Sheldon
