Monday, February 3, 1936

South wind but cold
Stormy this eve-
Mother been good all day-
Iliff came and took me to Ithaca-
Had my shoes that I bought in Buffalo repaired
bought me a pair of jersey* gloves for chores-
Wrote to Aunt Emmeline and sent her a birthday card also one to Mildred^-

Jersey work gloves like Irene's



*I was thinking this referred to hide of a Jersey cow, but it turns out it is Jersey knit work gloves.

^Mildred Searles, daughter of a fore mentioned Florence Searles, friend of Irene.

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