Letter to her mother thanking her for sending a new nightgown; describing her date with Rod, a letter from Mildred, and arrangements for Ralph to bring Lee a date for Prom.
Tues. Darling - Just a card again - but it ought to be a book! The are numerous items! 1. The nightie arrived today and is simply darling - will do beautifully for tonight as it is very warm & we're going to stay overnite at a friend of Lee’s mother’s - the one where we met the boys. I met Rod last night (went for ride) and he's terribly nice - not awfully goodlooking [mis-spelling: good looking], but tall & - well nice, more later, after tonight. 2. Mildred's letter is grand. Will she understand if I don't write to thank her right away? - I want to really get concentrated on the thing itself. 3. Lee's man couldn’t come to Prom, she didn't want to ask anyone else around here, so I asked Ralph if he had a special friend he'd like to bring - forthwith he has! Does that relieve your mind & conscience? While we’ll miss you, it might be simpler - eh? Letter to you someday I hope [written in the right margin] My oh so best love tho - Ginger
