Let me know if you get this Thursday, will you, it going out at 6 P.M. No particular news, I guess, but just a few minutes before I have to go to Verse Speaking choir, and this piece of paper looked too inviting. I just had to spoil it. So hello. Miss Hart told me this morning that my Criticism exam was oup [mis-spelling: up] on the reserve shelf for the others to read because it was so good! Item...well, well, well. My, isn’t she nice? While you’re up in the attic looking for the Psych notes, if you haven’t already been up there, will you see if my notes on 19th Century literature are also there? I think I’m going to need the part on Words woth [mis-spelling: Wordsworth] for Criticism, and what Mr. Howard at Pomona said may be interesting. No particular hurry. Whenever you feel like getting dusty. How’s the wine? Hugin still prefer milk? Bless his preferences. Eh? Time’s up. Must fly. I go to speel off some spoken verses. See you anon. Loving you though.
