Standford & his daughter, Uncle Ugene Bushman, Mary Cheney & Br. Roberts are staying here. When I started this letter it was Friday night, but I had to go to bed, and moro 'tis Sat. Feb 17th morning. All have gone to conference except Lois June & I. I wish you could come & stay with us again. I am going to a Valentine Party this afternoon 4 o'clock at Theodora Ostlund's place. Orisa Green has moved to Vancouver, so now I have just Zola Brown as a best friend. Orisa just wrote me a letter yesterday & she sent me a Valentine. She told Zola to tell her friends to to be surprised if they come back in a weaks. They have been gone for nearly 3 weeks or more I think. I am getting along fine in school. Will tell boys to write. Hope you are all well, for we are. 

Love to all Dorothy Smith
