Excerpts from Letter from Gertrude Weil to Her Family, Page 1

College Hall
Mch. 18, 1897

It is to be at the Savage Gymnasium & nobody but the team & [illegible]-team are going, except a few others who are going to be smuggled in as subs, among whom your humble servant is one. I'd make a pretty substitute in reality without even my suit. The Savage people were awfully mad that we made such close restrictions. They had planned to give us a great reception, & besides Dr.Savage will be minus many
