Nancy's mother discusses Nancy's upcoming dance and for Nancy to let her know if she needs more money. She states she has not heard from Chuck or Ellis, and that Steve would have helped Ellis with his car had he come by. She mentions that Nancy's grandmother is the same and reports that Nancy's dad has been working long hours. Nancy's mother's relays that Nancy's dad suggests "'Advantages of a College Education'" as a speech for Nancy to deliver. Nancy's mother advice is to "stay away from war, racial problems and sex" in her speech. In a post script, she advises she does not want to send her the amount of money she requested in one of Nancy's subsequent letters due to the amount. She suggests a money order instead.
