[front of postcard] This has not yet been constructed--will be for the old maids. [back of postcard] I've wanted to write you but am so busy. I'll have to postpone it awhile longer. Like it fine, but don't find teaching in the St. Normal as cosy as I've thought holding a good job to be! Jim sent me $5.00 Write to me. Emily
