A parenthetical question mark (?) follows words in the original text that were not completely legible but were still transcribed. July 31. Hoyt came up to dinner today and I went up to Gus with him and had a very pleasant time. He is so kind and friendly, so free to speak before us that we can not help but like him. He is the only one of all my companions who has read or has a taste for reading the works that I have and the only one I know since my dear mother with whom I can converse on such topics.
I think as much of him and his brother as of any one I ever knew. They are young men of such good principles and have been with us at school so much.
