The story continues with the second journal. This is an entry from her personal diary, by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago. Click here to read more.
Got here this morning at 1 am!! The Ruizes had waited at the station since 11. They took Jean Howe with me because she had no place to stay and we could not look for a room then. They are so nice to me! I have a tiny room and a laboratory facing the back patio. I like it very much. Looked at one room for Jean which was in a nice home but cost 120 pesos a month! Bought tickets for a show at El Palacio de Bellas Artes tomorrow and went to La Cartagena (neighborhood theater) to see “Alla’ en el Rancho Grande” a Mex Production. Very good. A second feature was “Dr. Socretes” with Paul Muni – Only Fair. Saw Mrs. Ruiz’s father and sisters and brother. Mr. Ruiz’s mother is here for a few days until her house is finished. The baby, Bernardo is precious but none of the three children resemble each other – I am afraid that Ramoncito is still my Favorite! Jean is now doing exercises on the floor – so energetic. It has rained nearly all afternoon and night!
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
