    The Citadel Charleston, South Carolina August 22, 1928 Dear Miss Bragg, I am very sorry that I did not keep up my promise to write to you every week. The only reason for this negligence is that I was not in a happy mood in these few weeks. I like to spend my time in recollectiong my past, think-ing of the vague and distinct fu-ture, and planning for the years to come. I always think too much. This habit gives me too much pain! We were quite worried in the last few weeks when we learned that you were very sick in New York. We felt releaved [relieved] only when Chia Mei came back to Charleston. I hope that you have recovered [2] your health entirely. I think that you are now at home. You must feel very happy. Why not? Children always return to their mother for comfort. I am coming north in your direction on the eventh or eighth, next month. I will stop at Washington and New York for some time and then go straight to Norwich University, Northfield, VT. I hope I can see you once more, this year. I love Charleston with all my hear. I hate to leave this dear place. I go north, not because I like NOrwich University more than I do Citadel, but because I can have a free choice over there. I would sacrifice everything if only I can be free and do what I like. I think I will surely come back next summer since I have drank Charleston water for nearly one year. Yours always truly, I-Men [Postscript] P.S. I have received the check for hundred dollars from Miss Richardson. [3] [From} C.C. Tseng 38 Chalmers St. charleston, S.C. [Addressed] Miss Laura M. Bragg, Epping, New Hampshire
