Twelve o'clock and all is - silent. Betty - we did have such fun and such a good time playing bridge in your garden this afternoon. At last you came to see me, Harriet, to spend the evening. You like to play bridge as my partner? I think I really am improving. But the sweetest moments of all were those when you walked home with me, John. Betty liked you very much. I am so glad that she does. But of course she can't help it. I will wait and count every second until tomorrow evening.
This is the journal of Virginia Lee Scott, my grandmother, written when she was seventeen and first dating my grandfather, John Arnold Wilson. It's a dairy published by Media Drug Stores and includes space for two entries per day, with facts about the era printed at the bottom, which I have included in italics. Following, 1928, is the journal of John Arnold Wilson, my grandfather, at age nineteen and in love with my grandmother, followed by my grandmother's journal in 1931.
