Louisa P., age 72, North Carolina


Tryon – Warm. Was waked – got ready rather hastily at 5:30. Spartanburg at 6. Hot coffee and sandwiches. Two hours wait – train late. M. met me at Tryon – 9:30 – Glad to get home. Everything very pleasant – flowers in bloom. Lunch came – unpacked – all liked their presents. Especially the candy!  *(Louisa Pitkin Diary #M2003.5.1, D. H.
