How are things with you? Are you still busy serving as a nurse with the babies? What is the group doing? Can you still get together regularly? Do you plan a party of some type for Christmas? Christmas here will be pretty lonely. Many students will drive home, but that will be good for me to work. Boys and girls here are all very nice and kind, I doubt that I will find real friends here; the people altogether have a dreadfully narrow mind, and their interests lie in totally different areas. That is certainly and of course not to be seen as a fault, but the difference is still here, and therefore I will never really get close to these people. But that doesn't matter much, because they don't seem to be that precious. The big democratic freedom doesn't become them well. Sluggish and characterless they incline a bit to accept everything that comes from within as good and right. Well, maybe the one or other can be changed still!
