At the moment he was gazing inquiringly out of the tent door at a small orderly. The boy handed him an envelope, and the other glanced at it. Cadet Mark Mallory, West Point, N. Y., was the address. I guess thats for me, he said. Thank you. Hello in there, Texas! Heres a letter from Wicks Merritt. This last remark was addressed to another cadet in the tent. Texas, officially known as Jeremiah Powers, a tall, rather stoop-shouldered youth, with a bronzed skin and a pair of shining gray eyes, appeared in the doorway and watched his friend with interest while he read. What does he say, Mark? he inquired, when the latter finished. Lots, responded Mark. Lots thatll interest our crowd. They ought to be through sprucing up by this time, so bring em over here and Ill read it. Sprucing up is West Point for the morning house-cleaning in the summer camp. A half hour is allowed to it immediately after breakfast, and it is followed by the A. M. inspection.
