Louisa P., age 71, North Carolina

Spartanburg – Fine. Lovely day – Early start for Spartanburg. Lots of other Tryonites also went – M and I went to Bank. Cut coupons – then got shoes and other things. Lunch at Y.W.C.A. More shopping then home by six – A. had rather a lonely day – But had been out. Letter from Mrs Poe.  *(Louisa Pitkin Diary #M2003.5.1, D. H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
