Dec. 4th 1887.
My dearest Jule,
I hope the letter that is due at 47th St tomorrow will be interesting enough to
make up ^ all I had to go thro[ugh] in order to get it off on time. I wrote mamma about the snow storm that was raging, but little did I realize the full violence of the storm till I went out to mail my letter. I think it was the worst snow storm I ever was out in, the wind was something tremendous and nearly knocked me down two or three times, and in some places I had to go through drifts about up to my knses knees, the P[ost] O[ffice] is only a little way from here, on this block & opposite the campus,
