2226-23 Ave. Dear Mother and Dad, I am listening to Raymond. You know. I will try to leave on the 3:30 bus. I don't know when I'll arrive. Anita and I are having a swell time. We went swimming Fri. afternoon and Sat. Morning. Soma came back today and she is going with us Monday. My hair got wet under my cap Fri and Sat. So I washed it tonight and Anita rolled it up. (I rolled hers) Goodness only knows how it will look. Love Ruth N. [sic]
