Miss Drake has a pleasing and attractive manner and the makes many friends. She is unusually capable and she will be a distinct asset to any institution as she has been to her college. I take pleasure in recommending Miss Louise Drake. I admire her abilities and I believe that she has the brightest prospects for success from her real, essential, and native qualities. She is the material of which the best teachers are made. Very sincerely, Henry D. Blackwell, Ph.D. (Yale) Professor of English Literature
