Abbie B., age 21, Pennsylvania


Last night when I got home from school, the wagon was ready to take us down to Mrs. Dicks for supper.  Mrs. Dick is a niece of Mrs. Butlers, and the DeTerke girls are nieces of Mr. Dick.  The girls expect to start East today, so Mrs Dick gave them a grand supper.  We played “Ghost.”  Do you remember when we played “Ghost” in [No. 103]?  Prof Bear taught us.  I have promised to visit them when I go to Reading again.

Coleman Butler gave me a nice pair of cuffs, from Penina [Personals] and last night [won] another [fine] from Mrs DeTerke.
