Letter from Alfred E. Stearns to Mr. C.L. Li, August 9, 1907


Typed letter sent from Alfred E. Stearns to C.L. Li about housing for the conference students. Will prepare dorms for the expected amount of 100. Asks if there are chaperones for the female students. Can arrange for chaperones if needed. Forward mail to Mr. Fearing and to ask Mr. Fearing about the mail.


West Philadelphia, Pa.

My dear Li:

On my return to Andover this week I find your letter of the 3rd ins. I have told Mr. Sawyer of the number of students you expect to have at the Conference, and we shall make preparations for at least a hundred. I do not feel sure that we can see the cottages mentioned by you, since none of these are furnished, and it would be rather difficult to move all of the furniture required. We will have good accommodations, however, and I think your companions will all be satisfied.

Regarding the girls who are to come, may I ask if any arrangements will be made by them or by your for a chaperone? If not, we can probably arrange to have come one of our married instructors and his wife take charge of the house where the girls are to be located. We shall be glad to know, however, what is expected.

I am glad to hear that you have been so successful with your summer work. Don’t overwork this summer so as to be too tired out when school again begins.

Earlier in the summer I forwarded to you, in care of Mr.Fearing at Amherst, some mail which came here. I did not know your address, and thought that perhaps Mr. Fearing might. If you have not received the mail, please write to Mr. Fearing for it.

May I trouble you also to give me once more definitely the dates on which to expect the members of your Conference to reach and to leave Andover.

Very sincerely yours.

Alfred E. Stearns.
