 Phillips Exeter Academy Exeter, N.Y. Dec. 5, 1872 Dear Mother, A letter from Father this day received reminds me that I have not written to you this week and I now make haste to do so. I am well and am glad to learn that you are improving. We had a sumptious feast on Thanksgiving day. About fifty of the club remained here and we probably had as good a substitute for the regular home celebration as could be gotten up. I presided as toast-master. The school goes on in its regu- lar way and, though it takes up so much time, it can be but of small interest to one not connected with it. We have bought a [underlined: carpet] second-hand of some fellows going away, so we will have a room both comfort- table and pleasant against the coming win- ter. I am most happy to hear from fa- ther of your continued improvement 0087
