Postcard to her mother, written in couplets, asking her mother to bring items from home; reporting a check from the Boston Herald; and describing a Crew party that night.
[10 October, 1934] Mother dearest - Your forgiveness for these wretched cards? But I shall see you soon. Could you bring the opera glass to keep the world in Tune? (Forgive the couplet - I’ve been writing them, & rhythm is going thru my head - anyway, if time, - the following -: My blue sleeveless shirt with the tail, & the opera glasses if you have them & don’t need ‘em. Not necessary if impossible though. Got a $9 check from the Herald, it’s a gorgeous day - Crew party tonight - outdoors. Love & love Ginger What time exactly should I look for you?
