1 “One of the happiest days Ive had
'‘-this year waa August 81st, the day
r “The Fm proas of Japan” arrived in
ta-Yokohdina. Mr. Clarke and I went
.Mown early,-but found the boot was
in and the moot of the passengers,
had gene ashore sight-seeing. How
ever, we. began to look around and
oooa found quite a number of Sou
thern Baptists, among them: Mr.
and Mrs. Westbrook, who right away
invited us Jo be their guests for tif
fin on the steamer. I had* never met
Annie May Arnold, but had known
of her sines she first come to China,
because she was a Bessie Tift girl.
. We had a delightful time talking
about the dear college, in which we
are both so interested and also talk
ing to the ether people of oar Board
who were going to China. About
two o’clock the sightseers returned
and then we had a regular Bessie
Tift reunion or jubilee, or I hardly
know what to call it. It was some
what like a Methodist campmeeting
in the overflowing joy and inspira
tion. Frances Fulghum had come
to the steamer, so we had her and
Dona Anight, Alvada Gunn, Sara
Perkins and Annie May Arnold, -all
graduates, and me and I told them
since 1 am “big sister” to all Bessie
Tift girls, they’d.just have to let me
in and they did. The boat sailed for
China at three p. m., and these girls
held to me until I was the vei^r last
visitor to go down the gang plank.
Think of that many Bessie Tift girls
on use steamer!^ But girls, girls!
they were every one bound for
China, not Japan. Is it possible that
China is going to call more loudl>
than Japan for my dear Bessie Tift
girls! Now you know, my dear lit
tle sisters, if God calls you to China,
that’s where I would have you go
hut I do covet some of you for Ja
pan. • *

gone by, I shall lave you more now

been given a scholarship in your
school, which, as you know, has had
a very warm place in our hearts for
I need not tell you that it was
very hard to have both Haney and
Josephine go at once, but it is a joy
end comfort to iis to know thnt she
is tp be with you. We feel that she
is safe there irra way that we-ould
not feel if she were elsewhere.”
“I really cannot fully express the
deep satisfaction I have in knowing
she is to spend her college days un
der the beautiful inlfuence of Bes
sie Tift College. You will find rough
places, deficiences, faults, but she
has a warm heart and longs fjr
love and encouragement. Owing ti>
home teaching and very efficient
teachers during most of thj
time, she has been able to go
school. She may not be evenly pro
pared for your lowest grade,- but we
are trusting you to palce here where
she ought to be to do her best work.
She lev* music and has done quite
well, considering her lack of oppor
tunity, and I hope she will have time
to go on in this without neglecting
her regular studies.”
“We deeply appreciate what you
and Mrs. Tift have undertaken to
do fox. her and- it is our hope and
prayer that she' may^measure up to
our highest aspirations for her.
“We hope to.be in Georgia on fur
lough at the time of her graduation
and we are already looking forward
with joy to receiving back a full
graduate of Bessie Tift College.
“You may he sure that you and
the school will have a large measure
of our prayers and our very best
wishes at all times,
“In deepest gratitude, I am,
