Letter to her mother discussing travel arrangements for trip trip home for the break; and describing her Bible exam and a trip to the movies with Stocky.
2/6/34 [stationary heading] News from Wellesley College WELLESLEY COLLEGE PRESS BOARD Wellesley, Massachusetts Release Tuesday AM. Mums darling - And, soon I shall see you - very soon! Do forgive my correspondence, or lack of it - even this can't be a letter, cause I should be studying Philosophy my exam this P.M., but I just wanted to be sure you received the letter with the train schedule on it. Arriving 6:34 P.M. Schenectady, unless I hear to the contrary tomorrow that you will meet me in Albany at 5:50 P.M. Your letters have been so grand to look forward to at 11 AM. when me has been working all morning. I shall try not to forget anything. Yes I wrote to Auntie, so I may see her in Springfield as we go there. Mary Emlen has been debating whether [Page 2] to take the train or the bus, & since the advent of our blessed weather, she may change her mind & come on my train, which would be very nice. News? Well - not too much - anyway I'll be seeing you in a few hours - & then for a gab fest. Oh yes, the Bible went off passably - one of those things you write & write & write ad infinitum & wonder exactly what you’ve said. I didn't flunk it, but according to the sort of grades passed around here, I don't dare hope for much of a grade. And I've been dissipating (spelling?) Went to see Ann Harding in Gallant Lady with Stocky Sunday night & had a vera vera [mis-spelling: very very] good time - But I can tell you about it, & I should get to work. I'm riding on the bed with my back against the 3-way, & my light along beautiful duty, thanks to you - And love to you Ginny
