Letter to her mother describing her plans for the weekend with Ted, treatment for her warts, and her new bicycle.


12/7/34 Friday Dearest - The age-old question - how are you? I know as a correspondent I've been extremely bad this week - but, how are events and most particularly you at present? I just came home between classes to get my mail - found a letter from Ted just to reassure me of his pending arrival. He doesn't expect to get up tonight till after 10, so I'll see him tomorrow afternoon. For the tea dance, supper and the play - and Sunday for chapel and I hope, dinner if he has any suggestions. I've been trying to get things done ahead of time, & just got word that my Education paper isn't due [Page 2] till next Friday - so that eases things a bit. Yes, I had the warts electrocuted - going down today to have them paled off, then to a tea given by Miss Coolidge for seniors. Have bought a bicycle, so will save time. - for 75¢. There was one with various things hanging off it down cellar, & Miss Williams said I could have use of it this year if I wanted to have it fixed! So - you have no idea how much time it does save. Beyond that - not much excitement in the past - all future - and I'm sensible enough to realize it probably will fall short of expectations - but - your hopes? I shall think of you - with love and more Ginger
