(This is entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)
Bought ice box dishes and arranged everything to leave for Van Horn –
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
The Chicago Cubs won the National League pennant with a 6-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs also won the second game of their doubleheader 5-3 to run their consecutive game winning streak to 21 games. This winning streak is tied for second-longest in major league history, but it’s the longest in history to be uninterrupted by a tie.
Popeye goes to New Orleans.
