You worked until 9:15. You hurried too, so you could meet me at 9:50. If I had asked you not come to meet me you would have come anyway - you say. Because? Why must banks be open on Monday and Friday evenings. Eliz. and I walked down to the cars to meet you. There is all day Tuesday and all day Wednesday before I can have even a tiny kiss. God speed then!
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.
