My Dear Cal,

Just a line to say I start for home to-morrow. Hurrah! I wish you were coming too but it won't be long till Xmas.1

Au Revoir


1 A copy of the envelope is enclosed, with postmark clearly shown.

Ruby had indicated in her last letter dated November 3, that Mrs. Ross would likely close the college early early for the holidays because of the epidemic of illness (Grippe & Scarlet Fever) and quarantine at the college, see W4690.

It is likely that Ruby was home from November 21 to January 7, see W4730 dated January 14, in which she states that she had been back at the college for a week.

For a lengthy account of Ruby's illness see W6135.
