Washington's birthday. Went over to V.s today at 2:00 o'clock. We went to see the "Sharp Shooters" at the (?). Rather dumb play but passed the time enjoyably. We then went back home and had dinner (so good). Bill came over to see Alice - (?) while we stayed home and helped Mrs. Scott (mother) clear up and then sat 'round talking together - a most enjoyable day. Mr. (?) passed away, thank goodness. V. cried herself to sleep last night. I am sorry, dear.
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.
