Everything has gone beautifully again today. Lester came in for ten minutes before dinner. I was glad he did not stay. Alice went to a party, brother to school, Mother to sleep. Daddy read. Since I spent the evening sewing, my thoughts were of you, John! As they always are when I’m left alone.
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.
