The Letters- January 25, 1927 from Bob to Jean

The Letters- January 25, 1927 from Bob to Jean


             I do hope you came out all right with the last of your exams. And I'll bet you're glad they are over. 

            H__ told me in his letter that the petition for the 26th went through all right - and the only reason he gave for a change was the Chi O dance. 

             Truly I have been blue today. It never rains but it pours. 

             Gray told me today I was sure of a bid to the Alpha Xi formal here. But my luck with formals is no good so I am not counting on it in the least. I'm sure she has no reason to invite me.

             We had our first rehearsal last night and the play is to be given Friday night. The cast, with the one exception of the leading girl, is woefully weak. Thank heaven it is a light play. 

            Honey darling, it just seems as everything is going against me. Nothing goes right. If it weren't for you I'd be tempted to get out- way out- where no one I ever knew would know where I was- and start over again. But as long as I have you, dear, things can't be so awful. Life will have to be good to use sometime- but she's awfully slow. 

           Ask B___ if he's heard from me and hear what he says. I wrote him the meanest letter- not mean to him- but to my so called brothers. He'll understand, I think. At least he understands how I feel. 

           Next time I see you I'll let you in on a little secret- if you remind me. You've undoubtedly guessed it long ago- but you might be interested in the details. 

                         Good night, sweetheart

                                              Yours in the depths
