June 17th A week ago to day father took me to Pontiac. Since I have been there I have improved very fast. To day we (Jane & I) went up to the Union school. When we came back found nothing waiting for me.
Abba came with us.
18 To day I have been fussing round and am very tired.
Abba and Mother went up to Janes this afternoon. I wrote to Gus about coming to Ypsi that I would come if I could.
Father and Mother want me to go. They always try to make me happy and I but poorly, poorly repay them.
