a snob, so I wrote them all a very short note that did not Invite an answer to it the least bit. I also got the same morning my prize book from Everyland magazine and it certainly is a good one, I chose the life of David Livingstone by Basil Mathews and its proved to be very good. I am so proud of it for in the front is written" Elizabeth Evans Hughes, from Everyland Story Club". Isn't that nice?
Yesterday afternoon I had an awfully good time going over to the
library here on College St. and reading while Blanche and the DR.took
a walk. I love to do that, and in that way I can almost read in one efternoon one of the short books that really wouldn't be worth while to take out on my card. Yesterday I read and almost finished Hudsons charming book of tales of the Pampas Land and it was great, the way all his books are. This morning I expect to go over and finish it while Blanche is down town shopping. Isn't that a good idea? It certainly is one of the best librarys I've ever been to, they have the nicest, cleanest books as well as almost all the latest ones. I was astounded the other day in looking up, to gaze on a book called, "Charles E. Hughes", Jurist and Statesman, which I had never seen or heard of before, and which I immediately took down and perused. Its very interesting being of his law cases and how he handled them on the Supreme Court. I suppose you know all about it, but it was news to me.
Last night was the great Elman Concert, and I never hope to hear
another as beautiful. Isn't he a perfect wizard though, and Oh the tone
of violin and his emotion in playing it. The house was simply packed and they even put five hundred extra seats up on the huge platform for people. They went crazy over him and made him play four encores, two at one time, and I nearly went through the floor when he played as one of them, " Ave Maria". It was unspeakably beautiful! Well I can't in a letter tell all about it, but I will talk to you about it when you come up.
Well, unfortuantely my gossip has run out, and so having no more to say, I'll be after making traces for the library. Do write soon and
tell me when you're coming up.
More love than this letter can hold, from,
