You poor little dear, you must be so homesick now that you have just come from home. I thinks that's almost the most homesick time of all, don't you? My own Detty! Oh how I wish I could see you again right now and hug you and kiss you!You know I am getting terribly worried about your writing! It gets smaller and smaller every time you write and soon, I greatly fear, there won't by any writing there at all and then I wont be able to read your letters. I nearly died laughing when I saw the address on the last one. Please don't let it get any smaller than that, I beseech you! I am going to follow your example now and write smaller so I can get more in on a smaller space and so save paper, see? I am getting so economical and really I'm afraid very stingy since I have been off at school trying to manage my own affairs—money etc.
I had to stop yesterday and now it is mMonday afternoon and this letter hasn't gone yet. I am afraid you won't get it till Wednesday. I am so sorry.We are having some fun now that Lent is over. On Friday we went to a play called “The New Minister. It wasn't a very good company but the play was very cute and some of the actors were fine. We had lots of fun. To-morrow “The Man on the Box” is coming here and they may let us go to that. I certainly hope so! They say the play is very cute, but I certainly didn't think much of the book, did you?Saturday night we had a German. I went as a man (black skirt, plain white shirt waist, stiff collar, black tie and hair parted,) and took Louise. The men filled out the girls cards before hand and we had a great time.
Your letter was the sweetest thing, Dettydarling. I certainly think it is the most exciting thing about the unknown engagement! Do tell me who it is as soon as you have heard. I hope its Lucy!Aunt Annie is pretty well—not so very. She had a bad cold when she left. They have gone back to Chapel Hill for a few days for the Easter dances there. I think they are coming back to day an or to-morrow and then they are going to stay until the end of May, when I leave too. Isn't that fine? I am afraid I must stop now even though this is not a either a long letter or a nice one. How are you my darling sister? Are you perfectly well in every way? Do tell me. I am as well as can be. Good-byesweet-heart. Love inexpressible for my ownDetty
