Quite busy all day. I have never seen cousin Flo(?) laugh so much in my life as she did this evening. Daddy and Brother met us. Even they do not seem so gentle as you, John. I have been thinking of you all day! Last night you seemed finer than ever. Yes, that day will come, when you will carry me out and never put me down.
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.
