Randolph-Macon Woman's College Lynchburg, Virginia June 1, 1922 Miss Louise Drake is an H. B. graduate of Randolph Macon Woman's College of the year 1922. In addition to all of the required work of the college in English, Miss Drake has completed the following courses in English Literature: One course in Shakespeare, one course in Chaucer, one course in English Fiction, and one course in Nineteenth Century Poetry. Each of these courses is for three hours a week for the entire year. As Miss Drake's adviser for her college course I have had every opportunity to know her work. She is a fine student of very unusual mental ability. She has improved steadily during all of her college years. She is by nature the kind of person that will improve all of her life and she will get the best out of all of the circumstances of life. She is intellectually alert and she has natural talents of many kinds. As a teacher she will be interesting and she will inspire her students to work under her guidance.
