Letter from M. Carey Thomas to Mary Elizabeth Garrett, September 08, 1891
M. Carey Thomas writes to Mary Garrett, accusing her of preferring talking to people she is meeting in Europe over writing to Thomas. Thomas writes about her time visiting the Isle of Shoals, Maine, where she has successfully recruited a physiology professor. She writes again about her distaste for most of the people she meets while travelling and how she dislikes talking to prospective Bryn Mawr parents while off duty. Thomas details her trip home from vacation, including a stop in Boston and visit to Harvard, as well as a visit to the Bryn Mawr School. Thomas shares some ideas for renovations to the schoolhouse with Mary (including simple drawings), but suggests that it is more efficient for her to go ahead with plans rather than wait to have Garrett approve them.
Thomas, M. Carey (Martha Carey), 1857-1935 (author)
