Saturday September 25, 1937

The story continues with the second journal. This is an entry from her personal diary, by Elizabeth Lancasterdiary 2

Letter from Ty-Ty telling me to tell Mrs. Wheat the kind of water glasses I wanted – Wrote Mrs. Wheat.  Finished “Sea of Grass” of Arnold’s and loved it.   Read “Turnabout” (also his!) and laughed and laughed.   The situation in it is so ridiculous!  Heard last night that Bob Benson (Seminole) was killed – Know no particulars – June Wallace (boy) came to see Alyce Claire yesterday and told her. He left today.  She has said “no” to both June and Ed this week.  She cant be interested after they begin to get serious! I have a slight cold.

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