pleasant trip home and was glad to see home and your old friends. I wish I could have been with you at Finkling Spring the Sunday after you reached home just to have seen you meet all your friends & acquaintances. I venture you didn't hear much of the sermon that day. I would not had I been in your place. Miss Lilly you have no idea how bad we miss you at sunday school and church: we seem lost without you to play on the organ. Miss Ella Bradburn played Sunday. I suppose Miss Jennie will tell you how the sunday school is getting along so I will not tell you. I have scarcely looked at my French since school is out. How is Frank coming out in his? Excuse me I never expected to impose any of my miserable literature on you when you left Scottville. Respectfully Willie Collins.
