Postcard to her mother describing breakfast with her Ethics class, a chapel service, and having to pour tea pouring exams; and asking her mother to keep her relatives' letters for her.
[28 January, 1935] Monday Darlin’ - Yours inst. at hand. Hasten really, etc. no no exam today, but have been studying intermittently. Not too worried - but - I ought to be. Breakfast (whole Ethics class) with Miss Coolidge yesterday, talk around her fire - orange juice, toasted English muffins, coffee cake, eggs creamed & sausage, coffee, jams, marmalades, honey. Quite scrumptious. Then chapel in which he told us how to build up our consciences by moral certainties established in the past - and more study. Helen & I had a ½ pt. ice cream between us last night. Have to pour tea tomorrow afternoon - the Seniors taking turns pouring this week for exams. Cream or lemon? Do save both Joy’s & Aunt Gert’s letters & any more of A.G’s you may have. I’ll use ‘em in the novel, methinks. Letter fr [mis-spelling: from] Ralph - tra, la-la-la! Love you muchly Ginger
