75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 10, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 10, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.


Here is the daily entry for Monday, July 10:

Could hardly wait for Pete. Watched them bathe Billy. Sister Aletta dressed me. Up to Clayburg's & down town a minute in Irene's car. Home a little before 12:00. Ila here. She had dinner about ready. LVene, Carrie, Julia, Edith here awhile. Folks came out at nite. Loan Co. man caught Pete over on 80 & so we were late choring. Late to bed, too. Fed baby at 1:00.

My comments:

Ila Jean was apparently going to stay for a few days…

One page of Baby Book spoke about this day…
