Dear Friends:

We are now coming close to the school opening, and we wish to enquire, will Chrissie be able to attend the school? We will do all we can to help her in this. We will see that she has employment so that she can partly pay for her tuition. We ask you to consider this question. We will do all in our power to help Chrissie to advance in her studies; but we cannot tell definitely at this point where she can be of the greatest service. She can board with me, if you choose, and by helping in her spare time, her board will cost nothing. If she prefers otherwise, to take a part in the school work, she can do this, and thus partly pay her expenses for tuition. 12LtMs, Lt 98, 1897, par. 1

Please let us know in reference to this matter. If you could spare her to come now and help Sister Haskell to arrange and fit up the school rooms for the opening of he school, I will pay her ten shillings per week until the school opens. We do not know how you are situated, but I promised to write again and speak of the matters I have already placed before you. Please respond. 12LtMs, Lt 98, 1897, par. 2
