Margaret's Letter To Adelle and the Story of Ned Stonehouse


Margaret reads a letter to her mother telling her about Kenneth's parents' visit, the poor health of Kenneth's mother, and her struggle with the weather in Princeton. She writes about Ned Stonehouse, a bright young man at Princeton seminary. When Ned learned about the Landons' plans to go into missions, he said, "Not thatjazzy dame!" (which Margaret was not, but she loved beautiful clothes, and Ned might have seen her in her black satin dress).
