A holiday. Downtown with Mother and bought a new hat. John likes it. “Stranded in Phila.” Yes, I treated to the movies. How glad I am that we are free enough together to treat each other. J. will make it up to me ten-fold. Magazines are very convenient especially when we both most hold the center up. How strangely happy I feel tonight.
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.
