Monday November 11, 1935

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

Am expecting Pauline, Jeanette and Elton some time today – Found a piece of vine covered with gorgeous scarlet leaves.  It is pinned across the curtain of my window and I love to look at it.  Sent card for “the Correct English” for another year.


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

President Roosevelt speaks at Arlington National Cemetery for Armistice Day.

Football fans are on the cover of this week’s Time Magazine.

The American balloon Explorer II was launched, reaching an altitude of 72,395 feet with Captains Orvil A. Anderson and Albert William Stevens aboard.

A new Popeye is in theaters.
