Postcard to her mother describing a study session in the woods; and discussing registration for summer school and her expectations for grades.
[typed] Thurs. Dearest, A most enjoyable day yesterday out in the woods, and besides a battle to the death with lady mosquitoes, really got quite a bit accomplished. Wrote to Mum Mum, just a little note, thanking her, and telling her about the time situation as an excuse for the shortness of the letter. Found out Union is accepted by Wellesley for summer work, so do use the power that Albany doesn’t give Spanish very strongly. I wouldn’t put it on the basis of convenience or desire or bother, but on necessity. My best hopes. Read my little essay in class today...and seemed to amuse them, and please Perky, so I’m feeling a bit better about abilities. Perhaps the B I’m hoping for in that will balance the probable D’s in Econ. and Music! Must go listen to the letter now--Sorry-- [handwritten] My bestest - Ginger
