University of Virginia Summer School Office of the Director University, Va.
University, Va. Aug. 2, 1917.
My dear Mr. Maphis:
No doubt you hear so many appreciations of the Summer School from grateful teachers that it's already an old, old story. Still, I should feel very ungrateful if I failed to make some effort to thank you for the many privileges of this institution - the excellent instruction and the exquisite courtesy that I met everywhere.
You, no doubt, have forgotten your generosity in allowing me to take six courses. Barring the three days when I was in the throes of examinations, I have continually thanked you for that indulgence also.
If it were not for the fact that I fondly hope to have M. A. engraved on my tombstone, I should be happy to come here summer after summer, for in no school have I seen better work in the department of Romance languages.
Thanking you again, Sincerely,
Lillian G. Griffith.
