Editor’s Note: We print below extracts from
a letter written by Mrs. Anne Morgan Oxley,

glad to include more often interesting news and
comments sent in by the graduates themselves.
Mrs. Oxley writes from Laurinburg N. and I.
“I am doing well with my classes and with
the nice, kind friends here at the school. There
is such a friendly, homey atmosphere here that
I feel quite at home. Our principal, Mr. Mc
Duffie, is most kind. I have three classes to teach
here. Geography, Biology and General Science.
There is another graduate of St. Augustine’s here,
Mrs. Marie Hendrick Moore, of the class of
1920, and she has done splendid work and well
represented St. Augustine’s College. It was the
successful work of !NIrs. ^Moore, a graduate of St.
Augustine’s, which prompted ilr. McDuffie to
employ another graduate from St. Augustine’s.
I am further very happy to state that my ’’Alma
Plater’ is well thought of here. I am striving to
the best of my ability to uphold the standard of
my ‘Alma Mater,’ just as Mrs. Moore, and even
better. I am happy to state, for our college’s
sake, that my work thus far has been acceptable
to those of this institution.”
