From the Daily Examiner, Dec. 1, 1904. page one.

In a letter received by L. B. Miller of the Charlottetown Business College, from Miss Laura M. Nicholson, we are pleased to learn that she has secured a good position in Boston as Book-keeper and Stenographer in the office of a Wax Manufacturing Company. Over thirty applications were in for the same position, but when she produced her certificate she was accepted. Miss Nicholson writes that Miss Mabel Doyle is stenographer in Jordan & Marsh's employ. Miss Matrion Doyle has a good postion as stenographer and book-keeper in a Real Estate office; Miss L. MacLaren is engaged as book-keeper and stenographer in a lawyer's office; Miss Irene Mackay, as stenographer and assistant book-keeper with a firm on Atlantic Avenue, and Miss Katie Dover, a good position with an Elecctrical Co. in Roxbury. The above named young ladies are from the same class 1903-4, and while it is pleasant for them to be situated so closely to each other, it is most gratifying to all that they have been so fortunate in securing so soon after graduation such good positions. In her letter Miss Nelson has many kind words for the C. B. C.
