(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Told the family on a card what I had learned. Yesterday I had a letter from Washington about translator’s position in Civil Service. I’ve sent in a card to be notified of an examination. Mrs. Mulroy ate supper with us at the Cafeteria. The 3 of us saw “Keeper of the Bees” later . Practiced some shorthand but I am no shark at it. Saw Bernard at the show.
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Visitors to the Caterpillar Showroom admiring the 10,000th diesel engine which came off the assembly line on November 13, 1935 in a RD6 Tractor.
The R.P. Resor was built in 1935 by Federal Ship Building Co. in Kearney, New Jersey, she was launched on Saturday, November 13, 1935. She was sunk by a German Submarine in 1942. A video of the wreck was recorded 77 years later in 2012.
Nationalists in Egypt launched an uprising against the government.
