Here’s an appendix to the letters from Marcy to her parents: a prospectus for the Six Day School, which she mentioned in some of her letters from California.
The underlined bits were underlined by hand, using a black marker. I’m guessing it was Marcy who underlined them, but I don’t know for sure. The handwritten parts are definitely Marcy’s handwriting.
I think this was included with one of her letters home, probably at least in part as a request for donations from her parents.
She also provided some other Six Day School materials, which I haven’t gotten around to digitizing yet.
[Handwritten: This is a very early prospectus; note increasing firmness & solidity in later ones.] "The appropriate act of man is an act of service." ...Anonymous SIX DAY SCHOOL A prospectus Justinian the Roman closed the Mystery Schools in the sixth century B.C. Degeneracy of content and conduct had been increasing for several centuries prior, but their official closing drew the final veil between true cause and effect in the mind of normal civilized man. Since then the academy has attempted to deal with effect independent of true cause while the church has been committing the opposite error. As one looking to heaven and the other looking to earth, we have been ignoring the practical connection. Part of the function of Six Day School is to help restore that connection. All of humanity is aware of some version of the fact that these are unique times of major change. In the language of his own culture and occupation everyone is telling everyone else that a new order of things is upon us. Not only man but the planet itself is obviously undergoing a vast crisis. Enlightened and efficient service in the cause of relief, liberation and unity is yet fervent but sparse. The purpose of Six Day School is to help man to see the truth in the light of his own divinity that he may then, through application on all levels of expression and experience serve his creator by serving His creation. The special work of Six Day School is the exaltation of the American Way in fulfillment of the mission of world server in the interest of universal brotherhood. Six Day School is actually a college of three schools based on the three point foundation of life, love, and wisdom. The attitude is that of conscious, co-operative and simultaneous growth in each. All three can become as one in the light of basic truth. Neither is emphasized more than the other two as far as the school is concerned, although participants may individualize as they will. I. The School of Life teaches and trains for constructive survival in a pastoral, agricultural or wilderness environment without the use of public utilities.

A representative curriculum may be as follows: Healing Sandal making and Leather work Dance and body movement Rhythm Nature magic Oracles The life of Jesus ben Meriam Child's play Sociology Theatre Talismanic magic Drawing and composition [Handwritten: sorry; p. 3 is missing] the staff. The student requirement is the desire to learn; the teaching requirement is the ability to teach and a knowledge of the subject. Contract agreements or relationships with faculty members are individual matters, the school having no restrictive policy. The educational method and general philosophy is essentially Western or creative. Books, lab and field equipment, group transportation and baby-sitting are provided by the school. Food and shelter are provided for any live-in class or project such as wilderness living or certain agricultural projects. The physical structures, locations and staff of Six Day School will expand and change as the curriculum matures. Six Day School (a non-profit organization) will never charge or solicit a fee or any other tuition. [Handwritten: Incredibly: still true, will continue so.]
