(This is an entry from the journal entitled Mexico Summer written by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago. )
Inauguration services at 11. Fair. Saw Harriet Lawhorn and found that her telephone number is 45333 in stead of 45336 so I had been told. She is the same as ever. In the afternoon I got this pen out of the P.O. and was so relieved that I didn’t have to pay duty on it. Carsey and I started to Tepogothan but didn’t go. Carsey and I double dated with Bettty and Chas Reeves to the show. I hope we can double date often because that makes a grand combination.
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
A riot breaks out in Regina, Canada when the Canadian Government stops a train bound for Ottowa full of people who plan to complain about relief camp working conditions to the Prime Minister. Canada was also suffering from a great depression at this time. 120 were arrested and one person died.
