Saturday, Aug. 3, 1918

The temperature ran to 110° today.

The air was hot enough to cook

anything set in the yard. Mary 

and I were out awhile in the

morning and afternoon. Katie

had a party this afternoon for

Grance Blackman. If it had

been anywhere else I never

would have made the effort to

go. Things have been so rushing

for a week. 

Sunday, Aug. 4, 1918

Just as hot today as yesterday. 

Mary has been sick all day--

from it. She sat on my lap

most of the day. Didn't go to

sleep until about 10:30 P. M. John

was here for dinner. Mary & I

were down in the basement all

afternoon. It was the coolest

place to be found.
