Dear [Spooks] -
            I guess I had dinner - I mean supper - at the Inn tonight with Katherine Baugh and I guess she told me all about you. 
    This weekend has been snowy as usual. Friday night about 16 of us went sleighing in a driving snow storm, and we were crazy about it. We went out past the [Insane] Asylum and sang and whooped like the Inmates thereof. When we got back we had chocolate and crackers and then just tumbled into bed we were so sleepy. Then afterwards I went to a tea given by Dolly [unreadable] for Elsie who was here overnight. She looked very pretty, as usual, and asked for Jean (as usual). Miss [McCall] sailed for Europe Saturday

and though we shall miss her dreadfully, I certainly am glad she has the vacation, for she has been looking so badly for a long time. Mary Taylor says she only saw Jean a minute at the 
[luncheon], but that she could plainly see that she was a beast!
    Tonight Miss Katherine Davis told us about her work in the Bedford Reformatory and she was so interesting and inspiring. 
    Please, I wish I had some more news, but I’m sleepy and my brain won’t work - I’ve killed it writing Valentine’s. Please tell me about Logan’s bar exams. My love to the family and Elaine. 
        As Alway,
