Friday Noon.

We had part of the exam this morning and after lunch we will get the rest of it. I imagine it will take part of tonight too.

Mrs. Scott & Mrs. Cort are here this noon. They send love.

The letter and photo enclosed with this are from a Dorothy Cort. The back of the photo is dated April 8, 1929, and says “Helen, 13 yrs. old today; Peggy, 11-1/2; and Dorothy, almost 9.”

Dear Mrs. Dove,

We all thank you for the many pretty things you have given us. I have had so many things to do since Christmas I haven’t had time to write to you. We still play with our dishes that you sent us. We haven’t broken one of them yet. Every one is envious of them. I hope that you are coming up to Baltimore when Mr. Dove comes. We got tennis racquets this year and are anxious to learn how to play. Mother had a dinner of eleven of Daddy’s dept. men last night and gave them Chinese food to eat.

With love to you
From Dorothy Cort
