Note to Mary Jean from Donna. Transcription "Sat Mom, Barb and her mom went out for dinner, but they'll be back in plenty of time for you to go over to the play with them. Barb has your tickets. I'll come back to the dorm as soon as I get out of my make-up etc., so just come back (Herb will probably come with you) and then maybe we can go get a snack or something. That's what everybody is going to do.  I'm scared. Donna I'll meet you in the dorm lounge after the play."
