Why doesn't he come and tell me he is going to marry me.
What do I care about an engagement ring. It is John I want.
I hope, I pray that he isn't letting himself go to pieces. I love him.
I'm waiting for you, 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.
