My feeling has always been & still is that such a place would be a blunder on the part of the State. I do not believe it to be either wise economically or educationally. The college is too far away to work satisfactorily in either way. This is my distinct present conviction, therefore if this matter came up I would have to oppose it, because any first interest & allegiance are pledged to the [illegible] not just as it [illegible] women's education, but as [illegible] its growth & future [illegible] as a State institution. On the other hand, I am interested in women's education everywhere & [illegible] so just how in the midst of a changing & [illegible] often a bewildering world these days. I think Via is fortunate in having Miss McVea in charge of Sweet Briar & I would like to help her, so far as I may, carry out her plans on Sweet Briar in making it a first grade college. And yet my [illegible] feeling & sympathy would always [illegible] [illegible] [illegible] [illegible] on women at our State [illegible] in to that cause I have given the [illegible] that was in me during the past 9 years. [illegible] fully understanding all this. You still want me, I will accept & do my best in at present the college at the [illegible] is still not a reality.
