Tuesday 1-31-28 I have not written a thing in my diary for three days. I wonder if I am weakening. Sunday I slept till twelve o'clock, arose, ate and then went to Sunday School. Mr. Dredger was telling (told) us his (?) the observance of Sunday. He maintains that as Saturday (the Lord's Day). Day of Rest. Sabbath was observed in (continued on January 30th)
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.
