Have lots of fun and some rest. Devotedly,
Clemmie (Douglas)"

I'm now up at Cambridge having an interview. It's impossible to get in here but I have enjoyed my stay. Now I'll be able to show you around when you come over. This is the famous Bridge of Sighs. We stood on it and sighed yesterday. The view down the river is wonderful and the colleges are all lovely.
I'll write from London.

Love, Helen"

  weiz_055b To Miss Elinor Shuffle

"My dear Elinor, It was very good to hear from you and the changing feel of the kitten. I was so glad that you have some teaching in the country-school especially since that plan about med. artistry turns out to be so silly and round-about. We'll talk about it when I'll get back, which won't be long now. In Switzerland I didn't get much medic work, so I'll have to enjoy nature instead and look into healthy eyes. It may do me good. It's here so beautiful, it's indescribable. Wonderful weather, exhilarating and uplifting! Merry Christmas to all of you!
