A peep into the future! Goodbye, dear. "Don't stay late, haven't you forgotten something?" You gave it to me so willingly - just as all tactful husbands would do - you brought back a peace offering. Not candy or flowers but cakes. "The softest pillows in the world" - just for you (and yours). All you have to offer me is the love of a bank teller? That's exactly what I want - your love and your best. No more and no less than your best and you.
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.
