Jean, I may have made a mistake in the cost of your breakfast on Sunday morning, if so deduct .05 cts. as your breakfast may have been the one 15ct. meal. With the opening of summer school and all that means, today is the very first opportunity to work on the above,
[handwritten note at bottom] I have just written to Maj and Mrs. Atkinson to thank them for their courtesy to us.

1942 Jean's NYC Trip May 18-26
Jean had a culture filled trip to New York City with a West Virginia University group of students in May 1942. Jean would have been 19-years-old. Miss Isabel Hayes, group leader, is identified in the West Virginia University Yearbook as being a member of the Class of 1933, and thus would have been about 31-years-old. Total cost of trip including $20 in spending money was $101.85. According to Measuring Worth using a Purchasing Power Calculator that would equal about $1360 cost in 2010. No indication of how many girls were on this tour. Transcription follows.
