Jan. 12.

Dear Mother + Father,

No, I [cannot] come here later in the afternoon, because this is the only time it is open. "It" is the doctor's office. [The] only thing to do is to get over here as soon as possible after lunch.

I worked a good deal yesterday. Helen Reid + I called on Miss Wells. [The] best part of the call was the discussion of Glacier Park between Miss W. + me.

I went to bed right after supper last night about seven-thirty. I did not go to sleep early, but I had a good rest.

[Four] classes this

morning, and there is the end of the story.



[Jeannette Fellheimer] + Lucy are having C. Rosenbloom + Howard Spellman up for Junior prom. Lucy asked me to come over Friday aft. for the in-formal dancing. It's a long time off.

Dear Mother,

I started Dr. F's medicine again, because the throbbing is really quite painful. I went to bed after supper, because I had to. My back ached. I was so tired. This is not a discouraged letter, you see - just straight [fort]. I am going to take my first walk today. I don't know how I will get along. I'll see.
