Representative Broyhill and Louise Broyhill, arms raised in victory

This is a letter from Emma Baker Martin to her aunt Betty Kirby Eller. Emma writes this letter while sick with the mumps. She is attending a girls college, and discusses her lessons and reading. She says she is no longer homesick, but likes being alone sometimes. The letter references the recent election of many Democrats, which was praised by Emma and the town she is in, and how she is possibly going to be travelling for Christmas.
