Friday, January 3, 1936

Mother, Aunty, Clara, & Harry went to Ithaca- Mother and Aunty had their feet treated by Dr. Price
I made cookies and got dinner and dressed a rooster this P.M.
Iliff* came and spent the eve
He has rented the Horatio Smith^ place- to move this month-
Aunty's new cot bed came by express-

The front of Irene's diary

*Iliff (pronounced EYE-lif) refers to my grandfather, Iliff Willard Dolton, Sr. (1897-1981), Irene's only child with Willard Dolton.

^Could this refer to a house owned by Civil War veteran Horatio Williston Smith of Butler, NY, or his father Dr. Horatio Smith? Could they be relatives of Irene?

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
