Hello Doc:

Sorry I haven't written sooner to thank you for the copies of the Aztec and the "News Letter." Believe me, I certainly have had a great deal of enjoyment out of them. My former classmates and fraternity brothers are often on my mind and any news of them is most welcome.

How I would like to be lying out in the quad waiting for football practice or drowsing through one of your classes, (the warm weather of course.)[sic] Speaking of Geography, this island would really be an ideal place to have field trips. I doubt that there would be much deep study on such a trip as the spring weather found here causes one's thoughts to wander to lighter and more interesting subjects, educational nevertheless.

It is too bad that so many of the old guard have left school to do more importants things but I know that they can sense the importance of every one doing his share, and I know many of them will return to enjoy college life once more.

Thanks again "Doc", and I hope all is well with you.

Sincerely Armond Ault
