Excerpt from Message

Dear Aunt Celeste, Thank you so much for your letter card and the calendar, the latter will be very useful as it is the only one we have in the house this year. I found my Mother more crippled than ever, but in very good spirits. I heard from Paulette that she was included in the Dean’s List for the first semester, affectionately, Muriel
