Miss Head’s School 2538 Channing Way My dear Mrs. Muir, I am glad to be able to write you that Wanda has made some improvement in her [ ] this term but her work is not yet up to that of the [ ] class. Miss Head hoped when she left that Wanda could get along by herself but she did not feel certain that Wanda could. She [ ] in her final examination but there was a number of omissions and [ ] she needs further tutoring. She works [ ] but somewhat [ ], I fear. She requires more guidance and more drill in the syntax than it is possible to give her in class. I am sorry that I have not the time to tutor her myself. Her reports are for the term, in Mathematic (both classes) 2nd Section, in History 2nd Section and in [ ] 3rd. It is a pleasure to have her in my history class and I only want work she curve as satisfactory of herself & to us in [ ] as she is in History. [ ] I can secure an excellent tutor in [ ] – a [ ] girl who has done special work in [ ] at the University had [ ] is clear and exact in her willtodo- and [ ] a very charming person. I want to tell Wanda again how pleased I am over her Christmas gift. Tell her too that I hope that the Santa Fe trains will be running on time on the second of January. Believe me very sincerely yours, Marion Rausom November 28, 1900
