My school commenced here June 3, and there are now 23 chaps enrolled and not very bad ones either. It is the nicest place I have had for two years. It seems nice to have it easy. Am staying at Olaf Olson's home. Have a pleasant time here. His folks are so nice, so is Olaf. Rev. Sandeen] says that Olaf became a so much better boy while attending G.A.C. Can you trace the reason for it?- This is a fine country, all pine region. Rev. S. and I were to a box social nine miles out in the woods Sat. Eve. Even here the people know of our famous reception games. They must have been to college to learn them. We felt fine (?) for our work yesterday after a few hours sleep. Greetings from [triangle] (I used as much space as I dared)."
