Friday, March 2, 1945

61st day – 304 days to follow

Frank Holman


Frank Holman had a fire in his beef house.

I hear Frank has got a divorce from his wife.

Worked up in the orchard on the apple trees.

Saw Joyce Wood, Go. Manter and Gramp Swift.

There was a flare burning off Rocky Point when I went to bed last night.

The blimp came in low over Ira’s at noon.

Phil Chandler is spreading manure where he intends to have a garden. I hope to find a few arrowheads there.

Eeanor brought me a swell polished pestle that Elba Grey sent up to me. Her father Lewis Cotti found it in his garden out North.

Bill Whiting called me up tonight.

    1. This journal was written by my great-grandfather, Jesse Brewer, who lived 1888 – 1971. He lived in Plymouth and worked as a caretaker at the Hornblower estate, which later became the land on which Plimouth Plantation was built. You can read more about Jesse at the About page:

      Thank you for reading!
