Inscription.  
"It is wonderful to receive such messages, most of them advising me to commercialize my beauty, but I must consider fitting myself for the tasks of life right now....I must complete my education before considering anything. Tomorrow I enter my senior year in the West Philadelphia High School for Girls." Concerning marriage Miss Malcomson said, "After all, every girl should marry and have their own cozy home and an industrial husband."
