Letter writing is a fine Sort uf -vfv.eJquarrels between nations may be avoided
time or hobby if one may choose to r'W it
such. It is of great value to the trit.r
and may be of great interest and equal value
to the receiver of the letters. Two girls wer
were in the hospital and decided the proper
thing to do would be to write a letter to
their teacher. The following letters were
duly written,posted,carried, and received
at the school. They were read and reread
by the teacher and then read again before
the class. Now they are here,inclosed, to
show the value of letter writing.2

correspond with boys and girls in
countries ao their names were taken
