Letter to her mother describing her busy weekend, including schoolwork, the Barnswallows play, the M.I.T. Prom, a trip to the Symphony, and a car ride out to Concord. Includes copy of Spring Informals program.
[18 March, 1934] 3/14/34 Sunday nite Dearest - Just a note - but I have to tell you what a grand weekend it's been. I haven't stopped until now since Thursday but it's been so very worth it. This won't be a detailed account - but suffice to say that even with a Music and an Ec. Quiz on Friday, to say nothing of a dress rehearsal - the Prom was wonderful. We got there in time, & oh - I'll tell you all about it when I get home - but we did lead the grand march - with a big armful of roses, sat at the President's table for supper, went out to breakfast afterward, & then to Jeanne’s aunt’s house to change into street clothes & back here for another breakfast at 7:30! Bed Till 12 - Tea dance from 2 to 6, back here again for the play, which [Page 2] went off beautifully - even I was complimented on my maid(enly) efficiency! The dance afterward, & waffles following. Then this afternoon - beautiful Spring day - to the Symphony & a ride out toward Concord with supper in an old 1747 house with board floors & fireplaces - & a white church nearby with New England pillars. The ride home most satisfactory - with my paper not done, Psych. quiz tomorrow & Ec. report yet to be finished - also very much tired - but I repeat, it was worth it - it was a weekend not to be forgotten in a hurry - & Stocky has been very sweet. I'll bring my diary home & details will be soon forthcoming, but I had to let you know how things came out. Thanks loads for the story & the Digests. You are so very grand to me - oh but wait - just wait till I can tell you so in person! Soon - very soon!!! Love && more!!!! Ginger
