All Aboard

Today's bookmark comes from reader Lou Ann:



She writes: "I found a ferry ticket stub from Tangiers to Algeciras, dated 06.11.02. I'm in Pennsylvania and found it in a used copy of Bill Bryson's "Mother Tongue." It's kinda exciting to find something so exotic, especially because that ferry was often used by so many of my favorite authors like Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, etc while they lived in Europe."

Pleasant Relations



Letter, dated January 24, 1912:

53 W. 126 St.

Dear Edna,

You have been such a dear helpful little lady this term so often sacrificing your own comfort for the pleasure of others that I had to just write and tell you how much I appreciated it.

You are soon to go away to a place that has been variously described as lovely - horrid - worst place of its kind - perfectly fine - so much nicer than Wadleigh and I hope that you may find it to your liking - that you will meet most congenial associates - will meet with marked success and a diploma in June 1913.

I am sending a little book as a very small souvenir of our pleasant relations together.

Wishing you increased health, strength and every blessing, I am

Yours sincerely,
Jane I. Taylor
