1925 Seventh Avenue
New York City
MJay 14, 1935

I posted the cards but I wish that you had sent me
more. I can place some at Barnard, City College, Hunter College,
and New York U.
Working like a slave -and liking it. But I have lost
all my zest for a doctorate. I have definitely decided that I

that I am wasting two good years out of my life when~;~~,:,,,BC~~l&y~t~l~~:~dB It se'tahould
be working. Then too, I love my Florida. I: as sick of these dull
gray skies and what not. I want to be back home.'
I have now had lunch with Julia Peterkin and we got on
~swell. She is back on her plantation agai. U~niv.Women gave me
a big tea on Friday. Celebs too numerous to mention were there.
I like Pearl Buck. She is so simple. Robt. Nathan (-nd I get on
My yearnful regards to all my friends. I know that MYrs.
Thompson thinks that I have forgotten her, but its just this
awful hectic life I'm living. If I told you all the things that
I have gotten done since Jan. you would open your eyes.
Send me some more announcements so that I can post them
around. Especially with summer school for teachers coming on.
You know what that means at Columbia.
My love to the family.

Most sincerely,

Zora Nea Huraton
