Dear Mama

I reached here safely and have a very comfortable room with Hazel Pich[ere?] There are ten other new girls I have lived through a Latin and History recitation and did not get scared. I am a senior so can enter College as a regular in a year. Miss Head would not let me leave out Algebra but there are two other girls about my age who are also begining it so there are only us three in the class and I will


have plenty of time to make it all up in the year so it will not make me stay here any longer I like the girls and teachers very much. Only had five minutes for this. bell is ringing

With love



[Berkeley, Calif.]
