Description

MBS writes to her mother summarizing recent political turmoil. A certain freshman's father was Chief Secretary of Chang Tso-lin, Dictator since June 1927. The faculty could always tell when there was national trouble coming because he would pull her out of school and send her back when things are calm. Chang Tso-Lins's government fell shortly before this letter, and Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist government arrived--thus, "now we have a new flag." She also reports the faculty leaving on vacation.
