Thursday August 15, 1935

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

Just walked around town.  Rained last night as that everything looked rather fresh and pretty –

Saw the Casino and some park land near it that would have been pretty but it had been neglected.  Ate lunch and started back to Mexico at 3 – Arrived at 5, went to Sanhorn’s for drinks and came on home.  Carsey came by later and we saw the last half of the last picture at the Primavera – He is not going to Vera Cruz which rather halts plans for my trip so we weren’t very gay.  We went to Tacubaya market for  tacos, sidral and a banana.


I felt that the summer was over and Carsey will gradually become a dimmer figure – I rather hope not!! He missed a lot this summer and all that but he is still the best companero I’ve known for a very long time.

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

At age 55, Will Rogers, a leading political pundit of his era, died on this day in 1935 in a plane crash near Point Barrow, Alaska
