The story continues with the second journal.  This is an entry from her personal diary, diary 2by Elizabeth Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago. Click here to read more.

Met Carsey, Marta, Betty and Emma Lou at school at 12:00 – Skipped my 12 o’clock class and went with them to San Juan flower market and to lunch. Wire from Dad (time?) saying he hadn’t heard from me –  I wired him a note. Saw “Regards al Sol” with Carsey – They changed 2nd act from Colonial Maya to Mining – Very Good

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