Saturday the nineteenth
Fair. Edith + Audrea went for her violin lesson. Got a new book of music with a lot of old Scotch songs in it. I wish she could play them all now I don’t want to wait. Ruth came down in the p.m. Audrea went to ride with Mrs. baldwin at noon. Went to Harvard Sq. She also took her to lunch. She seems to be having a cold coming on tho’ Edith deny’s it. she always does. The Baldwins came in after dinner stayed untill one o’clock poor Audrea!
NOTES + EXPLANATIONS
On this day in history: March 19, 1927 (Saturday)
Balto, the Siberian husky who would later become the subject of an animated 1995 Disney film, was given a parade and a hero’s welcome in Cleveland, along with six of his canine teammates (Fox, Sye, Billy, Tillie, Moctoc and Alaska Slim). Businessman George Kimble had rescued the animals, two years after the 1925 serum run to Nome, after finding that they were being neglected.
