Dear Pa & Ma.
I passed through my examination all right. I passed four branches without missing a question. I missed six questions in all. The faculty voted on us last night. They send notices to those who have failed, to appear before the faculty immediately. As I did not receive a notice I suppose I am all right. I knew all the time that I would get through, as I was better posted than the majority. And whilst there are others going through there is always a chance for me. There were about twelve or fifteen, who
did not get through. I suppose C.H. Crain is an M.D. by this time. Their Commencement was on the 1st inst. I hope Ada & Hattie are better. I was not so nervous during examination as I expected, indeed I was quite composed. I send you herewith an invitation to our commencement which I am sorry you can not attend.
