75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 18, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 18, 1938


This entry is an irregular post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. Let's look at a few days in July...

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Posts will be added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appear.

Here is the daily entry for Monday, Jul 18:

Started threshing here after dinner. Went to town at nite & got groceries. Made 3 big white cakes for tomorrow. Scrubbed and waxed kitchen floor.

My comments: U. S. Department of Agriculture, Weather Bureau, for Carroll, Iowa reported the following temperatures"

July 18 - 95 high, 58 low
July 19 - 92 high, 63 low
July 20 - 87 high, 57 low
July 21 - 91 high, 60 low

Wind calm, each day, and Clear

Here are a couple of pieces of White Cake... how many pieces in 3 - 9x12 cake pans???






Families are Forever!  ;-)
