My own Detty

I am miserable because I haven't had one second to write to you in. This is pledge day and naturally all week we have been wildly excited and haven't been able to think of anything else. Now—I have five minutes to scribble you a few lines just to tell you that I am well and not faded away as you probably think, by this time. Oh, my sweetest I am so ashamed of myself! Please, please forgive me. Later on in the day or probably tomorrow I am going to write you a letter—Good-bye my own DettyWith a whole heartful of love & a plea for forgiveness


Nell.
