Marcy S., age 16, Tennessee

Bright, milder. Woke at 8:30 to cold room, climbed in warm bed with Mom and read “House of 7 Gables” while Dad got breakfast. Studied history 7 hours in all — yesterday and today. Good lunch in Mom’s bedroom. Mom able to sit up in room. Mary came about 3:30 and we went riding. Then to Christian Education. Afterwards Helen set George and I up at Norris Creamery. George gave Helen and I numerous cave-man kisses on way home. Beautiful full moon. Good dinner. Finished studying. George said he hated Mary — Mother says it is jealousy. “Bittersweet” is on tomorrow and Tuesday.
