Abstract
2 letters, one from Eaton to her sister Emma Hoadley Tenney, the other from Eaton to her father. Both letters describe Eaton's experiences during her spring 1888 semester at Vassar. Eaton describes the Washington's Birthday Party, for which students costumed themselves as colonial women, George Washington, "Indians," Salem witches, and Quakers. Eaton also describes a brief illness and a notable snowstorm that cut off the mail and roads.
