Dear Mama

I went to the opera last night with Mrs Pitcher to hear the Meistersinger and everyone enjoyed it wonderfully, the quintet where [Gadski?], Shermman-H[eich?], De R[u?]ski, Bishpam and Dippel all sing is marveous (I fear these people would hardly know there names the way I've spelled them) I do wish that you could hear some of it, couldn't you come down for Monday's Matinee? I couldnt go with you, but that wouldnt matter. I suppose you have heard from the papers how good Mrs Hearst is being to us about music, I went to the Damrosch recital this afternoon, it was delightful and we all went almost crazy,



and better still I am going to hear Shumman-Hieck and Bishpam sing Monday afternoon, and it is all free you know. I am not going to hear Carmen tonight a I expected for Calve is not going to sing and Tallulah and I were too sleepy to stay up so late unless it were something very exceptionally good. I got home at 2 A.M. this morning, and went up to college at 9 and had an awful English ex I guess I got through alright but it wasn't exactly pleasant. I saw Miss Eastwood at the opera last night and she said that she could



not come up Thanksgiving, have you invited the folks over for dinner then. I hope there wont be any other company then for I want to rest, sleep and calm down a little after all this rush and excitement. I will be home Wednesday night at the usual time. Time to go to bed, Goodnight

With love


Friday night
