Dear Mother + Father,
Cousin Abe, Edwin, + Bea's little brother got on the train at East Liberty. Other Jews on the train were: - Helen Klee, Mr. Klee, Frank Glick, Mr. Henry Kaufmann, + Mr. Morris Kings [brother] ([lliwch]).

There was some [uncertainty about the 11:30's leaving. I met a girl at the Pough. station who came up on that train because neither the 7:00 nor 7:45 left Sunday night. I could not get a parlor car seat, but [had] one in the middle of the coach. There were people standing all the way up. I came out here in a taxi and just made lunch.

Math - I don't know yet, but it will be the worst of all.
Dr. Scott was in the office yesterday, [so] she said she would turn my excuses over to Dr. B.
Mrs. Kaufmann wrote Lucy I was not coming back. [Ask] Dr. Z if those pills are the same as what I got at the [W. Penn]. They are not as effective.
My truck is here.
Miss Smith just gave me my excuses, and she told me to be sure to lie down every day. What she knows about me I don't know, but I was surprised that she should start giving me advice.
