Summary, etc.:
Mary Margaret McBride sent two post cards in 1940 and 1956, and one short letter in 1939. In 1939, Mary complimented Agnes for the "wonderful article in the Matrix." Mary wrote: "I love you for doing it so sympathetically and beautifully." The post card in 1940 tells Agnes that she is going to Missouri in the spring, and has a speaking engagement in Kansas City. The 1956 post card is from West Shokan, Ulster County, New York, and thanks Mrs. Hanna for "your nice note which Woman's Home Companion forwarded." She says that she still keeps her apartment in town but is living in the country "most of the time." She says that "Stella Karn and I both send you all good wishes."
