Monday, October 31, 1927
Cloudy and cooler

Washed and ironed some. Mrs. Hildebrandt came to use the phone and said I could surely do more in a day than she. Marjorie standing in an ordinary door with her arms out stretched (to keep Daddy out) just barely touches her fingers on either side.

(Aunt Marjorie wrote, "Mother could always do more in one day than anyone else I knew - possibly with the exception of Maureen." (Maureen is Aunt Marjorie's youngest daughter.))

  1. Hi Carol,

    The Hildebrandt children were mentioned in Ruth's diary on Sept 6th so I think that it was their mom Alice Hildebrandt who needed to use the phone.

    Alice and Otto Hildebrandt, and children Otto Jr., Alice and John appear a few lines ahead of Gilbert and Ruth on the 1930 US census. Otto was an inspector for the steam railroad.
