Friday the eigth
A pleasant day but a very high wind. After Clarence got home Edith went out in the car to do some shopping Amozelle + the girls were here to supper, or rather dinner for we have our dinner at night. She carried away another suitcase full. Edith got her new curtains hung, they look very well. After they went home read aloud in the “Lucky Sixpence” + went to bed.
