January 11 Monday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of ___________

Fair and warmer wind south.

Tied up bundles for Boston, had 58.

Archie came up and got them.

Called up Plymouth Hardware and ordered a grate and lining for the Hornblower’s stove.

Eleanor, Dot [Dorothy Frazier}, and I took the 7 P.M. Bus to town.

Toot [Lewis Covell] was on the bus and so was Gene.

I went to the […] Meeting and it was quite interesting.

Thelma got a letter from Dot today She says she is feeling fine.

Expects to be sick about Feb 19.

A man stopped here at noon looking for Archie and John Morton.

Put some ivy in a bottle of water in the cellar to see if it would root.

Much warmer tonight.

  1. The Dot on the bus probably was Dorothy Frazier The meeting he attended looks like (non?) COIN. I doubt there was non commissioned officers group in Plymouth at that time.
