February 14, 1927: “not bad for an amature”

Monday the fourteenth
Valentines day + Audrea got thirty five – not bad for an amature. Mrs Johnson came in in the p.m. which was great surprise as she has not been in here since last spring. We had a pleasant time + she stayed untill it began to grow dark. When she went Edith went down town to get our Valentines for Audrea. Ate supper read aloud in David Copperfield + went to bed. Dont feel very well.


NOTES + EXPLANATIONS

Whoohooo! “Not bad for an amateur”?! Really, Annie? Well well, look who may have a bit of a wild side. Wonder how many Annie got back in her day!

Here’s the appearance of Mrs. Johnson again. The only thing we’ve heard about her so far is that she had fallen ill after Christmas because she had “overdone it” and was resting on doctor’s orders.

We also know that there is a connection between the Lesters and some Johnsons via marriage, but we’re not sure if this is the same Johnson family yet.


HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

No not that David Copperfield. This David Copperfield.
