Dear Latin II,

You probably recall, from our class before the break, that a research guide exists for your Caesar’s Resume project.

As you complete your project in the upcoming weeks, the guide is there to help identify biographical information from a variety of digital library sources.

Best of luck in your research & do be in touch if I can be of any help!  Ms. Sanborn
