[Dear Miss Snell,]

[I can still remember the sly, thoughtful expression on your face when I asked to become one of your "Phys Edders" - you changed the direction of my whole life - and because of your fine character you attracted the greatest gals - Nancy Landis, Doris Harrington, Nat Hoagland, Mid Halbruegge, "B. B." Brown, Betty Bradway, Ann Baird, Bev Cloud, Ginny Dulin - all who have remained my life long friends.]

[Miss Snell, your love of officiating and coaching respect for the individual helped me in my High School teaching. Since [illegible]'s sudden death I'm back teaching and appreciate the effort, planning, worry, and concern that you have given so many.]

[Ursinus is so fortunate to have had you - so devoted! so dedicated!]

[Thank you for allowing me to be a very small part of your wonderful career at Ursinus College.]

[I wish you the best of good health and many happy years ahead.]

[With deep appreciation]

[Peggy Morrow '45]
