It has been snowing all day long and everything seems just right for the Christmas music that comes off this evening. It will be beautiful, I think.
Yesterday was the Second Hall Play, and we went in the [evening] with 1909. First they gave “Nance Oldfield,” - thank goodness they gave that first. Inez was “Nance”, and she was good, but not I thought unusual. Then they gave Maeterlinck’s “Sister Beatrice.” It was much the most wonderful college play I’ve ever seen. The girl who did “Beatrice” was exquisite and [brought] the tears to your eyes. The end is very sad, of course, but so beautiful. It was quite perfect to have for a Xmas play.
This week has been a very busy one, but not very exciting. Except that Friday night after Chapel I went up to Miss [McCall’s] room and had such a nice visit with her, and
Wednesday night when we have our serenade for the Seniors, we are going to sing them a Xmas song with original words and music of which we are very proud. Not much is going on this week but joyful preparations for departure! Only one more regular letter, and then -- I will hug you all (including Jimmy, of course).
I must [unreadable] now to collect Caroline for the music. Bye bye dears.
As Ever Lovingly
