Went over to see V. Just before entering house I felt I should have stayed at home. I left at 9:00 o'clock. V. seemed hurt. I'm sorry dear, but if I had stayed longer I fear I might have said something insulting. Better that I should hurt you rather than insult you.
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.
