Thurs. Jan. 22, 1976Dear Family,
As you may notice my enclosure, you probably realize the reason for this letter. I was taken by surprise to receive application forms from Cong. Harsha for a page (summer) appointment. It just came today so I am very anxious to complete it as soon as possible. If you will please fill it out and send it to him (Harsha) directly, I would appreciate it. I, myself, have forms, essays and transcripts to prepare. But if I have any chance whatsoever, it's well worth my time.
All is going much better this week for me. I was able to make changes in my schedule so that all four of my classes are from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., the perfect schedule. I still have only three classes each day and work in library an hour each morning. In addition, I can stay in my squash section.
Political activity is picking up. Several Presidential candidates are coming to speak at the Academy, including Shriver, Reagan & Carter. The others are sending representatives. I met Shriver's son last night, as he stayed with Father Morrissey.
I have a very busy weekend coming up. Catherine called last night to say she was coming down Sunday evening for a few hours.
The weather is really cold. The wind today, about 20 m.p.h., reminded me of Chicago as I was practically swept off my feet. Down to -5º tonight.
Well, sorry to make this so short. However, I have alot of paperwork to dive into and afternoon mail is picked up shortly. Hope all is well.
P.S. I could sure use some 13¢ stamps.
