Dearest Mother -
After due deliberation, I have decided not to aas for a change in the hour of my music-lessons which come on Thursday and so instead of coming down on the 1:32 this [...] Thursday, I’ll wait and have my lesson and come down on the late afternoon train - I’ll look it up and tell you the exact time I’ll arrive later.
Last night we had the first real business briefing of the Student’s Association - it was quite exciting in spots for such matters were discussed as the raising of student’s dues (which I vgorously opposed), and the petitioning of faculty for two separate class-dances instead of the Junior-Sophomore dance in the spring. They’ll never be allowed to have them in the world, but I suppose they can ask.
Agnes Campbell was up here over the week-end - she came up to go to Betty Shelby’s (1913) wedding - loads of 1913 people came up for it - it was the biggest reunion they’ll have until the regular reunion at First Hall Play.
Betty wanted me to thank Margery for her little letter - and we both enjoyed our surprise-packages very much indeed.
I went to a very informal party last night to meet one of the girl’s mothers. When I do anything like that , it makes me want to have you come up more than ever and show people what a real, good-looking, grand, mother is - half of them don’t know. Please come up sometime with me, and let me have the girls meet you - I want to show them my mother is something to be proud of. No [slaves] on Dot’s mother, but she’s not even in the same class with you -
Knowing all this before, I don’t suppose it’s much use to tell you over again - I ought to listen to this everlasting German anyway - See you soon, if Mrs. T says I may - Muriel
