Tuesday, April 19, 1927

Tuesday, April 19, 1927
Fair, hot

Washed all the clothes I found in the attic besides what we dirtied last week, a whopper but worst is to come tomorrow. Tied Marjorie in the back yard to keep her in. It nearly broke her heart.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, " I remember when Mother tied a length of clothesline aournd Eleanor's waist with the other end tied to the clothesline after a man had to stop his car to get Eleanor out of 12th St.)

  1. I cannot imagine all these children running loose as they did. Makes one wonder about child mortality rates back then.
