Letter to her mother describing the slow first morning of classes, a wire from Lee, cards she would like her mother to send, and plans to style her hair.


[10 January, 1935] Jan 15 ‘35 Thursday Dearest - Well - if it’s as mid-nightish there as it is here, you're in the midst of very gray rain, a lot of sleepy people who have been used to 11 AM. brunch, and more who can't realize classes start in 15 minutes. It was almost funny this morning at breakfast - same old medium eggs! Went down & talked to Frannie last night for quite a while. Didn't tell her about Lee, for I had a wire from her saying she would come up this weekend. I don't quite know whether to see Dr. Adams before she comes or not, but think [Page 2] I'll call him today, perhaps see him tomorrow. On the other hand, she may come tomorrow & may not want me to see him - may have new news, so I think I'll wait just a few days. Oh before I forget it, will you scout out the Christmas cards & send me Anogene’s & Lee's with their pictures? I want them, & completely forgot. May’s letter in there too, but no hurry especially for that. Helen got in about 10, so I didn't get to bed too early, but I shall make up for it tonight. I think I may have a permanent this afternoon - combine a needed wash with a necessary curl! Well - class is now. And so it all begins. But everybody feels the same way now, just getting back. I'll be in the swing tomorrow - Love you though - very much. Ginger
