Saturday August 3, 1935

La Celestina

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

Cashed some money wrote letters and a paper for Nova’s lit class on “La Celestina” in the morning.  I am determined to find out about the Davis’.  Finally found they live on Avenida Veracruz 56 apts 4 and after some search found it.  They had invited some of the missionaries to tea so I stayed.  Dr. Hauser described a Catholic Church Wedding that he had attended.  Ethelyn is going back for her work on her Master’s next year.   She surely is ambitious!  She got a scholarship for her tuition.  She and I are planniing to go tomorrow to Tepozotlan with a friend of Mrs. Ruiz’s who is wild to talk English with someone.  Am rather looking forward to it.


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