March 8, 1927: “I should fly to pieces”

Tuesday the eighth
Raining this morning quite heavily at noon time just as Audrea was coming home but cleared about one o’clock + is now quite pleasant but very windy. Edith has gone over to see Ramona’s baby + then will go out to do some shopping. no check yet. I get so nervous I feel as if I should fly to pieces. Its never been later than this. pray heaven it comes. Edith went over to see Romona’s baby. says its very pretty.


NOTES + EXPLANATIONS

So, just a reminder to those of who are just joining us: Ramona is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin, friends of Edith and Clarence. She got pregnant (out of wedlock, much to Annie’s dismay) and just had the baby.

The infamous check we are so nervous about is the monthly stipend from Ben Newcombe, the only thing keeping Annie (and perhaps the rest of the family) afloat financially. Or, at least, it’s helping a great deal. We still haven’t figured out WHY Ben Newcombe sends this check to Annie every month.

Oh, AND… the check has always been this late. It arrived on January 8th and February 10th in the months preceding this entry.
