Description: Typewritten transcript of letter from William G. Giddings to his uncle D. C. Giddings, dated May 11, 1871 from Chappell Hill.

He says that he could, if needed, work during the day and study at night. 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.
