Dear Mom and Dad,
…At the present time Bourka operates five schools, which means, besides the regular expenses of books, slates, ink, etc., we are paying twelve teachers, some of whom are getting as much as $50 a month. Next week we are opening a new school. We were lucky to get an old dispensary building moved to the spot to use as the one room school house. The desks were finished on Wednesday and moved in. Today we got a bill for $60 for these desks and have no money to pay for them.
