[Transcript of letter from William Giddings to D. C. Giddings - May 7, 1871]

Description: Typewritten transcript of letter from William Giddings to his uncle D. C. Giddings. William begins by talking about going to a picnic and a concert with his friends, although Dr. Connor would not permit their female companions to accompany them to the concert. The concert raised $100 to renovate the room for the debate society, in which William will soon debate Native American land rights. He explains to his uncle why he made a bad mark in German and asks for advice on his goal to become a lawyer. He sends his love to his relatives and mentions Louise Lyan's production of maple sugar.

Description: Letter from William Giddings to his uncle D.C. Giddings.

Next, he talks about the University Stylus school newspaper that includes his name in a list of students who got distinctions and promises to send his uncle a copy. Finally, William says that half of the money raised by the concert was going to fix the debate society room, but the society decided instead to give the money to Mr. Mood to buy a printing press for Soule University.
