75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 22, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 22, 1937

This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.

For 1937, for most days, there is both a short entry in a multi-year diary and a longer entry in a an appointment book like her diaries of past years. There is some indication the short entries were made later based on the longer entries. We still do not really know for sure.

WELL, now we know. March 8 was the last entry in the 'longer' appointment book, like in prior years. March 9 begins only entries in the shorter, 5 year diary format. How long will this last???

Here is the entry for Monday, March 22:

Snowed part of the morning. Changed the office all around. Typed. Bussy having Spring Vacation. Typed Anderson [later added: What Anderson?] case. Locked the key in office.

"Love only is stronger than death."

My comments: Doing a Google on the quote, it came up the final line from a poem, Moonlight Rainbow, by LILIAN. Narrandera, November, 1899. Page 48, Otago Witness, Issue 2388, 7 Dec 1899. Found in the National Library of New Zealand.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
