I cleaned upstairs this A. M. Read
all afternoon. Katie had us to her
house for supper. Then Mother took
us all to the picture show. Geo. &
Harry didn't want to go so they
went to town together. Mother
gave Mary a new "Johnny doll" which
Mary immediatley huugged to her heart.

Opened up the Canteen for breakfast
this morning. Mrs. Flynn & Gooden
assisted. We served about fifty.
This evening we had at least
fifteen and they all had such a
jolly time. I invited John & Marnie,
Geo. Katie, Lewis & Geo.Jr. to come
over about 9:30 this eve and have
ice cream & cake in honor of
Mary's approaching birthday.
They all stayed quite late.
Marnie gave Mary a pretty
dress & petticoat for her birthday.
Have partly packed my trunk.
Bro. Geo. gave me a dandy chicken
to take for a lunch with us.
