Wed. Eve. May 21, 1914. Dear home-folks, It is late but I have great news to tell you so must scribble off a line. We had a class meeting & I was chosen 1917's delegate to Silver Bay. Hurrah! I'm going and all my expenses paid. Ain't it grand! And say, Mutter! You and I have an invitation to the garden-party, June 13. Blanche asked us to come as her guests. Isn't she a peach? Just a week from now & you'll be here. Hurrah boys! That waist in my laundry is a peach. Thanks! Am rushed to death so can't write any news. Your train gets [page 2] in Boston about 8:00 to 8:30 I think. I'll be there anyway. What will you wear - you know I can't pick you out in a crowd with all your new duds on. Goodnight - I have to get up early. Love to all, Eleanor.
