Description May 5, 1930. To the Female Society of Philadelphia Miss Slocum comes to read very often and we all enjoy it so much. The woman in the hospital Lucy Gavin is improving very slowly. The old colored woman, Elizabeth Sylvester, that was going in a home has decided not to and is sewing here again. Her son has promised to help her through the summer. Please let me know at once when we will close for the summer, so I can arrange to have enough garments to make. Please accept my thanks for letting me have the four days off on Easter week. I had a very enjoyable trip with my sister for nine days. The women had a delightful Easter. From our Society they received a geranium, about half of them were in bloom some pink and some red. Chocolate eggs and cards from Mrs. Steere. Chocolate eggs and rabbits from several friends. Cards from Miss Slocum. Hyacinths from the Queen Esther Club, Moorestown, N.J. Ice cream and cake from friend of Miss Slocum. Cards from a Mrs. Shump, Wenonah, N.J. Cards from Miss Levick. Table favors from the down stairs folks and two parties held in our rooms. We are making a curtain for the Friends' Central School for their Field Day, 4 yds. long and 50 yds. wide. We are also making several piece work quilts, the material having been donated years ago. There is only one more quilt here to rake. Bertha S. Cranmer
