Letter to her mother describing schoolwork she must do, her exam schedule, and Lee's upcoming visit.
[11 January, 1935] Jan ‘35 Friday Dearest - Just a note - hello - how are you. I’m fine - The Sun is Shining! It does make the world look so different - despite a newly assigned education paper for the 16th followed by my Ethics paper the 17th, & my 1st installment of novel due the 19th - Exam schedule is as follows Tues. Jan. 29 - English Drama Sat. Feb. 2 AM - Ethics, PM - Education Mon. Feb. 4 AM. - English 204 ([deletion: illegible] miniature of The General to prepare us for type questions) Wed. Feb. 6 PM. - English Criticism [Page 2] So I would just have that weekend - and I'm not sure how it will work out, but we'll hope I can jaunt home on an excursion. I'll be ready for a rest! Choir last night for the first time - Little Eva came over to talk to me. Simply told her that Lee couldn't come back for a little while, but was coming up this weekend. Expect her either today or tomorrow, but haven't seen her yet. Wrote to Helen and to Frank - and now I must get busy. G-r-r-r! Did you recover from your “illness”? I didn't have a permanent, what would falling off roof & all!
