Bought 3 pieces of materials for dresses and organdie for the top of my pink – Hope to get Mrs. Parker, whom Mrs. Martens knows to make them for me. A Mrs. Parker sewed for me last year in Gallup too. Saw “Gilded Lily” – Good too.  Wrote to Carsey – Pauline called but couldn’t stay long – even to come up to see me!




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

News of a Christmas day slaying in China just now reaches the U.S.  Witnesses report that  the hacked bodies of a Brittish and a Swiss Missionary were seen lying in the streets of  Changteh, Hunan Province.
