Letter to her mother describing her trip into Boston for the Home Library Club, dinner with Ted, and an evening with Lee at Dick, Terry, and Jimmy's apartment.


[18 february, 1934] 1/18/34 [stationary heading] News from Wellesley College WELLESLEY COLLEGE PRESS BOARD Wellesley, Massachusetts Release Thurs AM. Dearest Mumsy - I realize that soon you will become most weary of my snooty stationary, but it's all that's available of present, so do forgive it again. Miss Dutcher, bless her heart, didn’t appear this morning, leaving me from now until 2:30 P.M. free to do my paper in. Also to let you know that indeed I arrived very safely last night, even though it did get very very chilly. Also I discovered that another girl from Wellesley has the Home Library group 2 doors from mine, at the same time, so we went in together, & plan some time to stay in for dinner, for exploration and whatnot. She's most nice, & I think it will be fun to have someone to go with, compare notes, etc. We “acted” yesterday, and [Page 2] loved it. Even little Louise and Joey wanted to be in it too, so we had a fine time. I'm at the father too, who seems quite intelligent and nice looking, & was very interested in the dramatic attempts of his offspring. Then I met Ted for dinner, which was most satisfactory. He’d been working very hard & seemed to enjoy his few hour’s diversion. Then I trolleyed out to the apartment where we had a rather uneventful but thoroughly enjoyable time. Dick’s one of the nicest boys I've met - very thoughtful, and somehow grasps situation instantly. In fact all 3 of them are, Terry, Jimmy & Dick, I mean. Also Dick asked me to be after-initiation Fraternity Formal February 10th - which gripes my soul somewhat that it couldn't have been a week later. However, there'll be other ones. But I'm faintly sleepy this morning - & expect to retire for the next 3 nights at 10 PM. By the way, did you ever get your rouge I sent? You never mentioned it, & I sent it a few days after I got back. Seems to me I'm always coming to the end of a page! But “ love goes on” Ginny
