Dear Mr. Neuenfeldt:
Thanks for your kind letter. Under separate cover I am sending two pictures and two commencement programs which might be of interest. However, suit yourself about using the latter, but I would like them returned with pictures.
In the year 1898, only one, Mabel Varney, wrote in the finals. I wrote you in my first letter that Eva Miller also finished that year, but I find her name in the 1897 class program, so she must have come back only for post graduate work in 1898.
Mabel and Eva were the only ones taking the finals that year. The rest, with the exception of Philo Meade and Gertie Miller, were joined by Bride Miller, Sena Hanson, Margie Thompson, Alice Miller, Ross Miller and Mabel Rossman, to form the class of 1899.
Of this number, Bride Miller and Gertie Miller, their cousin Ross Miller, and Ferdinand Wollenberg are now deceased. Of the whereabouts of Birdine Anderson and Sena Hanson, I have had no information for years. If anyone who reads this can give me news of them I would appreciate it.
Our principal through 1896 on to 1901 or son, was Prof. B.O. Dodge, now professor of Botanical Research of the Bronx Gardens, New York City.
