Friday Nov. 23. Went to breakfast. In school. Boys came home from dinner with us. Will and I took a walk as usual after dinner. Came home. Boys were here. Stayed all night. I did not go to bed.

Believing that God ordained the virtues of thrift and sobriety, Brown cultivated an ethos of hard work and discipline on campus. Classes began at 6:45 a.m., formal dress was required of all students, no matter how poor, and students could be instantly dismissed for gambling, visiting a saloon, or even unexcused absences.Clearly there was a way around the dismissal for unexcused absences, as Nadine and her friends skipped more than a few. I wonder what he would have made of her escapades, had he known!
