yourself yet. Besides. Vera will not be in New York. She leaves next week for fall. To see her husband. I'm going up Friday 4 something and coming back Sat. after the afternoon show. Daddy is not going so you see with tickets already purchased for Friday nite ("Othello") and Sat. matinee ("Carmen Jones") I wouldn't ask for you to leave now.
Forget substituting a history course because I think you will need that double time for Latin. At least I'm going to ask Miss Lyon to let you drop Physics and try to get the Latin adjusted.
I shall send the knee-top socks and your jumper tomorrow.
Go to the office Monday if they haven't sent for you to find out their decision. I'm sending a special air-mail letter to Miss Lyon. This week isn't lost. Even if I had been with you, they still would have tried you out in those two classes for a week. 
I only expect you to do your best in the subjects that you can handle. Don't be discouraged. Keep your chin up and let the dimples shine (smile.)
You are always in my mind & heart. Everything is bound to straighten out. Just give it time. Hugs and love and xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with kisses
Your Mama
