Dear Dr. Peacock,
Your kind letter received, and contents noted. In answer to your letter, will ask this question. If Spring Term of 1899 for Board, Tuition, Light-, Heat- and Washington equals 90.00 Latin Elocution and Music + 45.00 = 135.00 Less 15 percent - 20.25 = 114.75 Supplies Extra + 21.80 = Cost $136.55 What ought it to cost a sick girl for 43 days studying Penmanship, Spelling, Composition, Bible and Piano, from Recitation 33 times.[?]
I don't know what your rules are regulating such matters. It just doesn't look right to me, but I am willing to abide by your
decision. I have no feeling in this matter. It's business pure and simple. I am not only willing, but anxious to pay every cent my daughter contracted while at G. F. College [Greensboro Female College]. Whatever your decision may be, whether more or less than the check returned let me hear from you and I will respond promptly.
I feel sure you are our friend, and I know we are your friends. Mamie and myself are both improving.
With kindest regards
W. T. Farrow
