William Still writes a letter to his daughter, Caroline, who is away at school, in response to her letter telling him of her difficulty with her mathematical studies and suggesting the whole family move to Oberlin. Still tells her she should learn the rules of Math as he wants to set her up in a shop when she graduates, and he will stay in Philadelphia as he has just bought two properties and has other business ventures.
