Jan. 5th

My dear Constance,

I have just returned from my vacation we got out on the

18th and returned to class on the 4th and found your card waiting for

me. I assure you,it was mighty welcome.

Do you remember how we used to talk of Pannie Hurst? well
I am secretary to her now. Of course she could get a better one,but she

just likes me and so 1 sit up and peck her letters out on the machine.
All thia,of course after school hours.

I suppose you want to know how this little piece of dar-
kish meat feels at Barnard. I am received quite well. In fact I am re-

ceived so well that if someone would come along and try to turn me white

I'd be quite peevish at them.

nere is a twitwr match container of Miss Hurat's. I took
out the remaining matches for fear of fire in the mails.It aws used on

the evening of Dec. 19th by Fannie Hurst, Stefanson(the explorer; thas.

lorris, and myself. Arvin S. Cobb was there but he used another pack~with

Jesse L. Lasky and Margaret Anglin. You can get one of your brothers

to put in another pack of matches-. I just thought you might like a sou-
venir of F.H. since you admire her so much. Her new novel APPASSIONATA

will be out Jan. 23rd.

I am glad that you remembered me.Write me a line sometimes

when you have some moments to kill.

Sincerely and cordially,
