Spring, Dedicated 1979

"Spring" is a sculpture by J. Seward Johnson that was installed at William & Mary in 1979. At some time prior to 1991, the letter held by the figure Tina in the sculpture was broken off.

A transcription of the letter from "Spring" is as follows:

"Tina,
Hi! You wouldn't believe how
much I miss you! I am having
a great time here but I do
wish you were here.
Next month we go on
vacation and I will be home
to see you and I hope you
still Love me. So what's new
in town? Last week Bill
met a girl and Broke up
with Sue. Even if I see
a good looking girl I think
of you and I will never
break up with you.
I hope you don't Break up
with me for Some one else.
Luv you,
XXXOOO
Johnny."
