Description Me dear It is lost we believe. Solid opposition. Another meeting at 9 ½ A.M. I shall go to Chicago but I cannot tell if I can get off that night till later. I hope so. Father has staid [sic] over and is here. It is a Quaker College they wish and Howard Comfort has been proposed as Vice President. I think it is perhaps better. Father says with 5 or 6 such unreasonable men I could do nothing. Oh my darling if it were not for my girls and then one chance I could stand it [telegram: Compromise measure proposed arrive five forty five and will go this evening]
