November 11 Thursday, 1943

ToDay is the Birthday of

This morning Bill came up and we went over to the Nook Farm and dug. He got two bone awls and two nice white arrowheads. I found nothing.

We went up to Bill’s and ate a lunch, then took a ride up to Hanover to Doane Farm and I found one nice long triangular notched face slates arrowhead.

Got back home at 4 p.m. and we Thel, Ski and I got ready to go to Boston to the Rodeo, Archie and Cozette and Mr and Mrs Frazer went up.

The show was not nearly as good as others I have seen.

We got home about 1 a.m.

We had light showers all day and much cooler in the afternoon.

Charlie Frazer said Hartwell’s place is practically sold to be turned into a business main club house.

  1. It was strange to read this on Veteran’s Day and realize November 11 had not been declared a holiday to honor Veterans at the time of this entry.


    1. “Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938”
      I don’t know why it wasn’t celebrated. Maybe because WW2 was still raging and just didn’t feel right to celebrate the end of WW1
