Clara and Mary come at 5 this P.M. - Tree ceremonies tonight and field day to-morrow.

Grace was real dissappointed that Mother did not come. She sort of expected her this A.M. even tho she wrote she was not coming.

Mother, don’t work too hard. Hope the vacuum cleaners come while Mrs. McKenty is there.
