Thursday, June 10, 1926

Thursday, June 10, 1926

Went to Mama’s and the boys came out after school. Winifred left for Hollywood, Florida. Harry has rented a flat and has everything all ready and Mable tried to persuade her to put off going said she was cramping too much but Winifred said “No, I’m going today” very emphatically. It made me long to take a journey. I haven’t been on a train for twelve years except for four miles. Winifred looked awfully pretty when she left in a flannel ensemble for Florida!! I hope she learns to use better judgment when she gets way from Mable.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "I always thought Winifred was very pretty (she was about 14 years older than me). My youngest daugher has Winifred's large brown eyes."

Harry seemed to like living in Florida, and that is where he eventually settled, helping Winifred, who was widowed when her husband died in World War II, raise her twin boys.)

  1. I guess Aunt Mable would use any ruse to get her own way. But it didn't work this time. She was always getting sick at the appropriate time.
