February 7, 1927: “poor silly child”

Monday the seventh
A beautiful day. Mrs Baldwin + Ramona came in a little while. poor Ramona poor silly child. I am so sorry for her.
Nothing happened worth writing about read aloud from Rebecca of Sunny Brook Farm Clarence came home saying he had stomach trouble + must go on a diet, but he wont do it I know. more trouble for us I expect.


NOTES + EXPLANATIONS

Uh oh. What did Ramona do?! I suspect it had to do with a boy. Let me see what more I can discover about these Baldwins. 

update: So I was right! It DOES have to do with a boy. I’m not sure I should give away the plot that will unfold, though! Let’s just say that census records indicate that Ramona Baldwin, at this point in February 1927, is in a little bit of a pickle. That pickle should pop out any day now…

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is of course a classic. But I suspect it spoke to this family even more because it was based in a fictional town in Maine.
