Dear Mother + Father:

I slept till ten o'clock this morning and was to sleepy the rest of the time to do any work.

Heard a splendid talk last night by Miss Elsa Butler, head of the Vassar Unit at Verdun, on their work there. After that we went to the French Club reception for her saw her pictures, + had good refreshments. Then, after that we (Ruth [Bransten], Helen Hertz, and I) talked [deep] stuff for three hours. "Deep stuff" might be summed up in "The Position of the Jews in V.C." I showed them the door at 12:30. Perhaps that's why I'm good for nothing today.

At present I am at the infirm. visiting Jeanette [Fellheimer], who has a sprained ankle

Love, Fannie
