The Abbot Circle 192 5 Wfje Btarp of a jHemfoer of tfje Cla S of 1925 Apologies to Mrs. Pepys Sept. 1920-June 1921. Did arrive at school betimes feeling very sad and blue, wishing me back home with my family. Was made to feel very insignificant upon being addressed superciliously as a " Prep " by a Senior. Did make many mistakes known as " boners, " such as: (1) Not rising when guests entered the library. (2) Not stepping aside for Faculty and Seniors to go through doors. (3) Not bowing to Miss Bailey for the first week when leaving the dining- room. (4) Did walk on sacred circle and was made to feel decidedly small and minute. (5) Did speak to Jimmy Smith on street, who is from my home town and attends Phillips. Was duly informed that I must not speak to boys " on the hill, " by the president of Stu. G., of whom I was much in awe. I do not understand this, as my mother thinks him a goodly boy. By spring of said year did feel worn out and sadly in need of vacation. In June did travel to Boston with host of chaperons and dispersed to my home town to tell of my year ' s experience and advancement. Sept. 1921-June 1922. Did return to school as a Junior and did greet my school-fellows joyfully. Did feel mighty superior to " new girls, " having advantage of knowing some of the rules. Although did know rules did manage to break several during the year. Was brought before Stu. G. for having feast in bathtub, which seemed to me quite proper. Was placed " on bounds " and did promenade about the circle for one week. Our class did have a picnic at Pomp ' s Pond. Did fall in the water but managed to conceal the fact from the chaperons. Did part from my friends with great grief and wailing in the spring of said year. 29
