Mothers’ meeting at the school. Entertainment by the primary grades and Albert was in it and I wanted to go so bad, but I had a bad sick headache and had to lie down a while. I simply wouldn’t make it over there. Mended what time I could work and shortened my coat, so as to be ready to go tomorrow to the Sunday school class party at Mrs. Raferts.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "I recognize the name Rafert. When I was in Methodist Hospital with appendix operation when I was 18, Cora Rafert was at the same hospital and had a bouquet sent to my room, as she had so many flowers and no room for them all.

I would guess Albert was also disappointed that Grandma didn't make it the mother's meeting at school.)

  1. If your Aunt Marjorie is interested, there's a Miss Cora Rafert, living with widowed mother Kate on New York St in 1920. This Cora was a clerk for the railway. A brother Arthur is listed with them in 1910. During WW2, Arthur worked for the Office of Civilian Defense in Terre Haute, and has a Cora Rafert, address New Jersey St in Indianapolis listed as his permanent contact.
    Might be the same woman?
