Vassar, March 16. (1874?)
Dear Mother,
Yours has just

you meant by the last
letter. things were run
together so. Stewart
advertises striped silks at
.75 per yard. That would make
the dress come to 16.50
If he sends me nothing
less than .75 what shall I do?
I don't think foulard's are
very pretty. You have looked
in Providence and there
is nothing there anyway.

less than .75 in town
and Stewart sends me

it Friday or sooner and
send the money, if you
can. If S. sends patterns

send to him without
delay, [so if you c]
E. M. Tappan.
