This is the day I should have eaten chicken – dinner in the church with Bernard but as it is my week on duty I nobly refused! I received about 25 Valentines from the children at school – we a box in our home-room. In the afternoon Bernard send me a beautiful silver and white checked heart box of candy from Kipling’s!! Precious!! A letter from Ty-Ty this morning makes it a perfect day. Choir practice and party for the girls chorus afterwards – Good time had by all! Announcement of engagement of Juanita Young and Wayne Rapp!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Hauptmann is sentenced to death.
