Sunday December 5, 1937 (Her last post)

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

Shopped all day for Christmas – Charlotte K. came up for tuna-fish sandwiches and coffee.  Renewed loan at bank one month.


This is the last post in the journal – and I do not have another. As you can see she was writing more infrequently as the wedding date gets closer.  They were married January 22, 1938 in Van Horn, Texas.   I will continue to post his letters on the date they were written, obviously I am unable to guess when they were received. 

Here ‘s what else was happening 80-years-ago today
