from Gillian written February 27, 1974 in Lennoxville:
I just bought this brand new clean white paper and I have
a stamp - so why not? We have been having some really nice
smoke here. I bought a 1/4 ounce about three weeks ago and
it was Mm-Mm-good! Today is the first
day in Lent (Ash Wednesday) (Hash Wednesday). I'll smoke after
school to celebrate!!! Right now I am in french class. Whoopee
Well what can I say? I talked to you on the phone yesterday.
I spoke to you, Dave, my mother and Ralph's mother (he was
out) all for free! Then I told a friend of mine about it and
she phoned Ontario for 3 minutes ($1.90) and didn't get her
money back. I laughed so hard and then she tried Montreal
because she said that it would come back and it didn't so
I got $4.40 of calls free and she lost $3.00.
must have been my sex appeal!
I hope when you get this, you will think "Ah, that sweet,
dear girl all alone at boarding school. I simply must write her a letter". And then I hope that you will sit
down and write. Oh by the way, in case you're interested,
I'm coming home in three weeks on March 22 and that's only
22 days away so start saving your smoke. No, actually I'm
going to try to bring some back with me somehow. Well, I think
I will buy a dime today or if I can't get over to Bishop's
University today I'll have to go on Saturday. My parents thought
I was cured of my evil drug-taking habits so I guess I'm having
a relapse (and what a big motherfucking relapse it is!)
I'm in Geography now and it is a thrilling class as you can
probably tell because if it was interesting I wouldn't be
writing you, but I'm going to sign off now because my teacher
is giving me many dirty looks.

March 1, Friday
not too fucking ignorant-she planned to go to Murry's tonite-even
though he could only have about six people, which would have
left me out. Julie told me at lunch. At first I thought she
was kidding, then I got really mad. Well, Julie told Bennie
I would get pissed off if she did so she didn't. We met up
at Fairview (where else?) along with Bernie. Mike Jeffries
gave us a ride down to A.Rhodes place (we picked up some beer
and smoked a few joints on the way). It was quite interesting
at Alan's (he only bugs me at school). Tilden came over with
some hash and got everybody (about twelve people) stoned.
One good thing-Bennie had a good time.
Mike, Rob and Michelle in the back yard having a snowball fight
[Rob and Mish were not yet going out at this time (Mish and
Foster were, Rob and Maggie had been) but it can be seen in
this small piece of film that they just might...]. View it here.
Flash 6 plug-in required.
Rob, Foster, Maggie, Danny and myself in my room (in the brilliant
afternoons after school we'd go over to my place and sit in
my room until about 5 or 6. This began in February/ early
Before one of these trips, Michelle had done quite a bit of
mescaline. She was sitting in the backseat of my car, her
books on her lap, saying she had to get her books. As we were
driving, she asked if we were driving. In my room she ran
around writing 'High' on everything
