4/16/35 [stationary heading] News from Wellesley College WELLESLEY COLLEGE PRESS BOARD Wellesley, Massachusetts Release Darling - Novel’s in - all 83 pages of it - and now there's only one more installment - it ran away with me a little, & I took some liberties with literal truth, but at least it's finished & accounted for. Now to plunge into other stuff & come back to it later. Discovered my report on “Mother” by Gorky is due next Tuesday & I haven't read it yet - I shall do some fast reading. Letter from Ralph today - a grand one, but rather disappointing - he can't come - probably wrote you too. Only has a few days etc., and & more [Page 2] work till June! So how about Easter day? Choir Easter Vespers are Sunday evening - & you've never heard a choir concert. T.Z.E. is also having supper Vespers which you might enjoy too. I wouldn't get any work done that day anyway, so don't For Heaven's Sake fuel you'd be “keeping me from something. Come as soon as you can - I mean Friday or, Saturday - whenever it's best, & stay as long as you can. I'll see you about a room in The Dorm if possible & approved & preferred. If you'd rather come later it's O.K. - but I'll be looking for word from you - Loving Ginger.
