No post today. She seems to be having a bit of trouble adjusting to her new job as a teacher in Roswell. She admits that her heart is longing to return to her Mexico Summer of 1934. Unfortunately for us, she is not writing nearly as much and is leaving us in a bit of a lull. I decided to skip ahead a year to see what was happening 79-years-ago today. Just to see how she was doing. Luckily she was in the writing mood that night..

Letter from Ty-Ty* telling me to have nothing to do with Girls Chorus if possible and to move next year to another job! Rather rare for her to say such a thing. Had another bridge lesson and am beginning to really get some points to contract!
Got “Ladies Whose Bright Eyes” at the Library by Ford Maddox Ford – haven’t read much of it but can’t get interested.
*Ty-Ty is her aunt/step-mother. Ty-Ty stepped in to assist with the children after her sister’s (Elizabeth’s mother) sudden death in 1919. Ty-Ty married the Rev. JP Lancaster (Elizabeth’s father) in 1921.
Here is what else was happening 80-years-ago today.
