HISTORY OF 68.
HIs'roRrAN's DEN, Some Time Ago, 1887.
Jlfy Dear Amelia Amanda jllalzfina 17172011671-f0Ilf5 .-
It is quite a long time since I wrote you my last letter. Perhaps you have begun
to think I had forgotten you altogether. But be assured, I still have a corner for you
in my memory. While rummaging about the materials for a history of our class, I
came upon your sweet image and presently determined to tell you about the class to
which I belong, viz: the juniors.
Now, my dear, you must not expect too much from me. If you will take the
trouble to sit down and try to write me a full account of all that l1as happened to you
during the past year, you will at once see how dillicult it would be for me to write a
complete history of the junior class. l
Juniors at one time were Sophomores. Between you and me, the Sophomore year
was an interesting one. It was the time when we studied two noteworthy branches.
The first is called Analytic Geometry, a very " tough " study, so called. A few years
ago there was a Sophomore class in college whose love for Analytic Geometry was
very cold. But let me tell you, Amelia Amanda Malvina Fitzallen Jones, that class
made it hot for " Ana," as they called the study. As you no doubt have access to
books written for the purpose of telling people about such capers, it is unnecesary for
me to say anything more about the fate of " Ana."
The other branch of study, my dear with a long name, about which I wish to tell
you something is Botany. Perhaps you do not know just what Botany is. Well, it
is a science which tells people how potatoes grow and onions shoot. It has some-
thing to'say too about wild flowers. This latter function of Botany is a very valu-
able one, because it gave the professor an excuse to send us out into the country to
hunt wild flowers. In this way, you may be sure, we had lots of fun. I would like
to tell you about some of our trips for hunting a very swccl-smelling plant, which
the smart people call simplocarpurfrelidus. It would take too much time, however,
to tell you all these little things, and besides I want you to know something about
our trip to the renowned municipality of Smithville. On a certain morning the
professor led us to the railroad station, where we took the train for Pequea. From
