Postcard to mother describing attendance at Commencement ceremony, and friend going home to visit her sick father. —Keywords: Commencement ceremonies; Diseases; Commencement —Tags: Tradition and Ritual
Mutter dear, I am downtown doing errands for Blanche & then have to go over to the station to see Dot off so can only scribble a line. B. got word yesterday that her father is worse so left for home last night. A rather sad ending for a commencement day. I was with her until she went & she is absolutely the pluckiest girl I ever saw. Saw commencement exercises. Stood out in the vestibule on a chair & had a fine time. Miss you a lot, Mutter. Love to all the Blairs & Aunt Mi. Eleanor.
