(This is entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Mrs. Grady came back Saturday but today was the first lunch we ate there! We discussed the fertility of teaching in general and of teaching English in particular! Would that I had the Spanish! Attended to the money order matter at the P.O. Hope they can trace down that $10! (note that $10 in 1935 is the same as $173.95 today)
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
The five-power committee drafted a report admitting its efforts at mediation in the Abyssinia Crisis had failed and turned the matter back over to the League.
A typhoon sent waves as high as 30 meters to Beppu Japan .
A new 30-seat flying boat from the U.K. is given the OK by the U.S. to carry passengers up to 3000 miles .
