Maggie L., age 22, Illinois


It was a good deal warmer but was windy. Lora was some better. Zella and I rode over to Turners with Willie when he went to the factory. ¬†We stayed about an hour then walked home. At two o’clock P.M. we started from home for Richmond (Willie took us). There was a great many people at the depot and the train was crowded all the way down. When I got to Elgin Mr. Wood was at the depot to meet me. George Robbins and Will Westerman were also there. Will carried my valise to “fountain square” where I took the street car. Zella went on down to Aunt Sarahs and from there home. I got to Woods about 4:30 P.M.
