[h...ing?] on the Hudson
I want to begin my letter home now so I can go to bed early & I know when I get back I will run round to see all the girls.
We just had the best time in N. J. and Don was a perfect peach. I was so proud of him. He did just right about the money. All the girls [divyed?] up with Walworth who [...aid?] for the checks.
I am sitting with [A...le?], [M…?]. Lois Hollway and Esther [Rensenhoff?] (the girl whom Don admired so.) I was so glad Don came in with me. We got nicely settled when they put 2 extra cars on about 10. min. after we left Grand Central.

Then I went up to [M…] Cobb’s room & we talked over our vacations. Then she came down with me to borrow my hair curlers (not curling irons) and she liked my tam ever so much.

Well I must say goodnight to my dear Mamma Dad & Don I have all your dear pictures on
Good night and love and kisses from your little Goo.

I did not keep my good resolution to get up early but I wore my beautiful dress. I was late to breakfast so there was no one to admire it but I saw [M…?] Cobb after & she admired it greatly. I feel so swell.
I got along alright in my tutor
Lots of love to my dear mama
