(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)

San Cosme

Saw Porfirio Gonzalez on the way back to school this morning – The 8 o’clock didn’t meet for the second time this week and I went home to see if I had a letter from Carsey – the big hum has not written a word!  Porfirio wanted a date.  We walked around near San Cosme until for my 10 o’clock and he tool me to see “Caliente.”  Fair show – Went too Strankey’s and Heidelburg afterward to see how the dancing was – both places were crowded but the music was good!


Got home around 1:30 and then he wasn’t ready to leave! Betty and James left for Acapulco. Boo! Hoo!



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

The August 1 Declaration was made by the Communist Party of China, calling for an end to the Chinese Civil War and for the nation to unite in resistance of Japan
