(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
We left the key in the door and someone stole a rug, a lamp, Mrs. Ruiz’s purse and gloves! I feel responsible and therefore can hardly stand it – I nearly cried on the way to school but I realize that it wouldn’t help. I wanted to call Carsey right away but didn’t want to disturb his sleep. He was tired last night, too. Called him about 9:40. He said he was coming and I saw him at 11. There was no class at eleven so we went to Lagunilla Market to look for the lamp. At 2 we were just leaving – I tried to call the home and at the 3rd try succeeded and Mrs. Ruiz said not to bother! I was so tired and weak that I wanted to sit down so we went to the show! Bless Carsey’s heart he did everything he knew to make me feel good. Even to suggesting that if paying for the articles tool all my money we could both hitch-hike home!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Anti-Jewish riots break out in Berlin.
