Mr. A. E. Stearns,
Phillips Academy,
Andover, Mass.

Dear Mr. Stearns:

My absence from Washington during the week-end has prevented me from answering your letter of the 18th inst. before now. Mary wrote to my wife saying that she had been unexpectedly transferred from Abbot Academy to Merrimac and that she was unhappy. She appealed to my wife to beg her father to let her return home next summer. My wife answered that she would forward her letter to her father and that she did not feel that she could recommend any course for her father because she had not followed Mary's progress in this country. We, however, suggest to Mr. Sun, if he approves, to have Mary spend the summer with us and the Easter Vacation if it is sufficiently long to warrant the expense. We think that by living with us for a while, she may get over her homesickness. Last Christmas, my wife wrote Mary asking her whether she had made any arrangements for her vacation and if not to come to us.

In view of the fact that we had forwarded Mary’s 1st letter to Mr. Sun, I am going to forward your letter and my reply also to him.

If there is any way that we can be of service to you with reference to Mary, please do not hesitate to ask us.

Yours sincerely,
Sao-Ke Alfred Sze
