The heel broke off my slipper and I had to take it back and have it repaired. Met Pete Cummings and told him about John and me. "It can't be."
Elizabeth called this evening and asked after John. I had to tell her the truth! It is not comfortable to talk about it but she will know sooner or later so why not now.
Poor Elizabeth. She was literally dumbfounded. Could not speak a word. "I thought there was nothing as permanent as that."
Nor I Elizabeth!
Bessie called me, too. A card, a letter, and a telephone call. She cares more than my sister does. She had hoped to gain a sister.
