Dear Muma-
Just posted your letter & Miss Burkholder has told Alice that she is pulling a new girl in here from Vancouver until Olive comes back. Guess they are awfully crowded now. I hope we like her. Alice & I were just planning how we would fix up since Olive is gone but now that is all done for now. Just got a letter from Bess but hope for yours tomorrow. Gladys
