Mr. Edwin 0. Grover
Rollins College
Winter Park

Dear M~r. .Grover:

It is always pleasant to hear from you and to
experience the pleasant stirring of nostalgic
memories which word from you always brings.

Once again it does not look as if I will have
the time to play a bit in Florida this Winter.
Each year I make resolutions that have to do
with leisure, breathing spells and holidays,
but somehow the wrork-a-da~y present, particularly
in these put-upon days, is so packed with
interest, that one forgets to feel deprived even
of the play-times.

It is gratifying to know that you and Dr. Holt
thought of me and I will be sharing in spirit,
your sunny and gracious celebration of February

Yea, Zora Hurston's achievements are getting
bigger and better as time goes on, and her
uture is still ahead of her.

Meanwhile to.you, your family and Dr. Holt, warm
personal regards,

Fannie Hurst

Carl Van Vechten says it is the best thing
that I have done. Perhaps he is rigfht but it
still doesn't say all that I want it to day.

Morgan College, Baltimore, M~aryland, con-
ferred the degree of Ee*. Litt. D., last June. I
thought you would be interested to know. I think
most of my friends in Winter Park will be happy
for me.

I am going to make a speech before an exclu-
sive women' clucb in Flwaukee on October 24,
then i am going on to Boston to speak at the
Book Fair on October 26.

I think my work here will be interesting. I
am very happy to have a chance to work with the
crowd at Chapel Hill_1. 1 think it is the door to
a new phase of my career.

;. best to the whole Grover family and to
all who may ask of me.

rFost sincerely,
