|Card to Dora Potter Bremercamp, Mary's aunt. Mary had stayed with Dora for a while in E. St. Louis. Dorothy Potter ("Dot") is evidently visiting Dora but will be back in Cabool soon.|
|Another card not sent to Mildred Lee, evidently Mary's landlady in St. Louis while Mary was working at a bank.|
The travel arrangements which Mary Potter had made to Washington were preserved: receipts and timetables in her scrapbook show that Mary had paid $18.00 for a ticket on the Pennsylvania Railroad #66 express, "The American," which left St. Louis on 9:00 AM Central time on June 16, 1935 and arrived in Pittsburgh about twelve-and-a-half hours later at 10:40 PM Eastern time. The connecting train to Washington DC, #533, left Pittsburgh at 6:00 AM and arrived at Washington DC at 7:30 AM on June 17, as the postcard to Dora tells us. Mary reported to work immediately. At least "The American" was fully air-conditioned and had all amenities available, although Mary probably did not pay for such luxuries.
