May Murray in Valencia at the Stanley. Oh lovely French girl who sang John’s favorite in French,“Cherie.” Yes, we came home from station in a cab and when we got here— ? Ah John, John, don’t ever let anything come between us! The kiss of love (my 1st). I have kept it for you—my prince. John, even though our tongues were still, our hearts were speaking. I am very glad you like my mother. She will never grow old.
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.
