Jack was on the Choate campus and wrote to his father, warning him that his grades for the quarter would n9t be satisfactory.
“I thought I would write you right away as Le Moyne and I have been talking about how poorly we have done this quarter, and we have definitely have decided to stop any fooling around. I really do realize how important it is that I get a good job done this year if I want to go to England. I really feel, now that I think it over, that I have been bluffing myself about how much real work I have been doing.”
