Arnold ate lunch with me.  We got my picture proofs.  He selected his and met Mrs. Morris.  I almost wept when he left but I couldn’t go to school that way!  Surely, hated to see him off without me! How is it that I love him now so much more than just last week, but I do! Charlotte missed school and we went to see her and stayed for the  “usual” coffee and home-made bread. Delicious!

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
