75 Years Ago Today
September 3, 1939
This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK SMITH, 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 Sunday, September 3:
Didn't get up until 8:00. Cleaned to two bedrooms. Bathed & fed Billy & then got beefsteak dinner. Pete went in to town after kerosene. Ate, did dishes, cleaned up to go riding when Irene & Betty came so we went to Scranton with them. Home at 5:30. Irene took my skirts to shorn. Fed Billy, got supper. Folks came. Ready to eat when Vic, Ger. & kids came. Listened to Roosevelt speech. They all left early.
Busy Sunday, good dinner, nice ride, visitors. Listened to the President's Fireside Chat.
