Written on 2-19-28. We made candy tonight (2-18-28). Great fun - sweetness - hominess - love - joy - happiness - no trace of sorrow - forever! She told me how L(?) - cad - had treated her. He kissed her. Can any (?) be broad-minded enough to hear that from his sweetheart unmoved - He is a cad and I am willing to say it to his face. Lord help me but I hate that fellow.
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.
