Saturday September 28, 1935

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

Left Van Horn at 4:30 just Alyce Claire and I!  We had asked Betty and when she couldn’t we wanted Lenore but she couldn’t find anyone to play for her Sunday and had to refuse.   Arrived sin novedad in Van Horn about 11 their time – Saw Harry Mulroy, Mrs. Monk, Mr. Wheat and Mrs. Gorman – just visited.  I couldn’t bring myself to take Alyce Claire to the show when it was only a Western!

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


The Cuba hurricane made landfall in Camagüey Province.






The Cubs’ 21-game winning streak was snapped by the Cardinals by a score of 7-5
