Feb. 12, 1925

Thursday, February 12, 1925

Lincoln’s birthday and the boys were out of school. They got up devilish and Gilbert said he felt sorry for me today. They coasted in the park and played in the snow all morning and at noon I put the little ones to bed and left the big ones in the house and went down town to buy shoes. Got two pairs that I believe will be comfortable. Was getting an awfully sore bunion on my left foot.

(The boys played in Brookside park on the east side of Indianapolis. When this was written, the boys were approximately 7, 6, 5 and 2 when she left them alone while she went downtown to shop. She probably took the "inter-urban" downtown to shop.)
