(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:
