"The show at Vespers was "Quality Street," it was keen. Marjory & her mother sat with us. Lucile, Elsie, Clint & Gerald went to a picture show. I didn't." This was written in blue ink whereas Bessie's writings were in pencil. I believe this in pen was written by my grandmother, Ethel, as her best friend was Lucile.

"I was good & stayed home in the evening. Lucile was coming up but she had a flat-tire." Again, this part was written in blue ink and again, I believe Ethel wrote it.
