Yesterday was pleasant. Luella phoned that she would come down on the 6 o'clock & go back at 8. She came but the freight didn't pull up to depot until 7:30 & as we had to get Clyde B. to open store so she could get a pair of shoes, she missed her train. She bot a copy of "Laddie in Khaki."We had cream and went to the "movies." She went home this forenoon; she works now at Borden's at Mt. Upton counting bacteria.
Today has been Arbor Day, but you would never know it at school. We did War Relief work this P.M. made Comfort Pillow covers. Yesterday rec'd letter from Don & today a card from Kate.
Notes: Counting bacteria? Did I transcribe that correctly? I suppose it makes sense if Borden's is a dairy maybe?
I chose not to transcribe the poem as it is by a fairly famous author, and so not really of historical value here.
