1967 Roberta Letter -May 9
[postmarked May 9, 1967, though letter may have been in the wrong envelope as school didn't get out until early June? Time will tell as we read through future letters!]
Hi! Well – one exam taken, three more to go! We just got done taking our Geography exam – was it ever hard. We got to keep the middle part so you will find it included with this letter.
My next exam will be tomorrow 9:15-11:15 – Algebra. I'm not really worried about it, because I know how to work most of the problems (all except the word problems)! Tomorrow afternoon I have my Bible exam – 1:45-3:45. Wednesday from 9:15-11:15 we will go to home ec room and clean the place up instead of having an exam in that class. Thursday 9:15-11:15 we be our English exam. It will really be tough – he cares alot about whether we can write good essays or not – of course I don't so I guess I'll have to do really good in the other parts of the exam. I hope all the times haven't confused you too much.
Next year I will be taking the following: English II, Ancient History, Bible II, Art I, Biology, Geometry – all of these are required – I would also like to take Spanish I but I;m not sure if I ca carry that many subjects. I put myself down for Drivers education too! We had to put down what we were interested in taking just this past week-end but our final choices will be made next year, the first day of school.
I checked with teacher Tom on whether I needed to take biology since I have already taken it and he said I would l need to. I don't really mind cause I'm kinda interested in that sort of stuff anyway.
If it can be worked out, do you think I could invite somebody from near Salem, Oho to come down this summer for a few days? Think about it and then we can discuss it later OK?
Do you know yet who will be able to come Saturday? I got a rally big box at Binn's Saturday and have already started packing my heavy stuff and things I know I won't wear this week. I sue will have enough stuff to take home – including my bike!
Well, suppose I better go – See some of you Saturday _ no I'll be seeing you all Saturday (at home). If you don't know what to have Sunday – and if it's nice maybe we could go on a picnic and have some ham? Did you get hint?
P.S. When you see me Saturday I should look different – I think you will be able to tell! You might not cause it doesn't make me look that different!
