The organization however especially beginning about Page 4, is weak. The paragraphs Are not really paragraphs and no distinction is made Between the fulsome Praise of miss Ferber a Friend Bromfield and the More accurate criticism of others. The writer failed to reorganize this part of her paper from her notes. A a a Walt this is a very accurate Job of extraction blending and concentrating.
