Excerpt: ... Cornell Stories $ THE WOOING OF MELVILLE R. CORYDON J. E. Thobpe, R. T., Rho Tau Lodge, Ithaca, N. Y. New York, June 14, 189-.

Why the deuce don't some of you fellows write occasionally? FOBTUNATUS CONSTANTINE WORKMAN, Beta Chi House, Ithaca, N. Y. Jersey City, June 14,189-. My Dear Son, -- I enclose your June draft.
