Hartford, Conn.

Dear Em,

Mr. Curtis is absent and I can’t find time for a long letter. I can’t tell either until his return just what I shall do about remaining here. If he should be able to engage such a teacher as he wishes for the year I cannot of course expect that he will prefer to make all arrangement with me to the Christmas vacation merely.

As sofar as I have settled the matter I will send a list of such things as I shall need. It is rarely worthwhile to send it now when I may need nothing more than I have. I will write at once after Mr. C returns. Love to all.

Virginia “Ginny” Hubbard to her sister, Emma Hubbard [Hubbard Family Papers]
