Dear Mother + Father:

Sorry I couldn't get a letter off yesterday, but my drama exam kept me rushed, and it wasn't even till after the mail left.

Let me know your stopping places - also if you are coming up via N.Y., + when on Friday, because we are thinking of going down to N.Y. on the boat Thurs. aft., going to see the all-star production of Sheridan's "School for Scandal-, staying at the Vassar Club over night, + coming back Friday morning. I'm crazy to get the boat trip, + I've never taken it. I have to be back at 4:30 Friday aft. for Commencement

Had a card from Laura announcing her engagement.
