Letter to her mother discussing arrangements for her family's upcoming visit to Wellesley.


Oct 10 ‘33 [stationary heading] WELLESLEY COLLEGE WELLESLEY, MASSACHUSETTS Tuesday Noon Hello Mums me darlin’ - Your letter awaiting me unsealed. Hope you didn't have a $20 bill enclosed! Sorry Ida isn't going to Springfield, but don't bother about that mammoth list I sent if you come with the Boornes. None of them are so terribly important, & I've even forgotten with some of them were. Just throw in what you can find, & never mind the rest. That’ll mean that you'll be here Thursday, won't it? Cheers! and maybe we could persuade Boorne's not to leave till Sunday P.M., if we were real persuasive. Tell you what, you plan the things you want to do, & I'll plan ditto, so we‘ll be sure [Page 2] and not waste time deciding things. Eh? I'll engage your room for Thursday nite and if by any chance the Boorne’s don't leave till Friday, just drop me or them a line on a postcard & say yea or nay. The copper candlesticks would go better in the room I think, but that's also one of the very non-essentials I mentioned, so don't feel you have to load yourself down. I just realized that I kept the little black suitcase, so I expect to see you arriving with a carpetbag. What time do you think it will be? I'm thru at 3:40 both Thurs. & Friday, & I'll be watchin’ for you. No more time now, & I'll save up any of the news till I see you! (Hotcha!) Ginny
