A Student's Letter Home 1903

Sunday, November 8, 1903

Dear Mamma,

It has been very cold all this week, and Friday it was only a little above zero at breakfast time, so please send my winter flannels as soon as you can!

Tuesday the School team, which was selected from all three club teams, played the Harvard Southmores [sic], and although our team played very well, they were beaten 10-0. Yesterday the S.P.S. played another game, this time with the Harvard Freshmen, and were again beaten 10-0.

Wednesday we had exams in Latin, German and Algebra, all of which I succeeded in passing.

All this week I have been playing foot-ball and not doing much else. I guess that is about all that would be of interest to you, so with love to Sister and the boys,

I am ever your loving son,

George Farnum Brown
