Harry and Clara left 2 o clock this P.M.
Had nice chicken dinner-
Clara measured the front south room and measured linen for lunch cloth and 4 napkins for Mother to fringe-
Vera and Gib* called this eve
also Iliff and brought me some of Mildreds birthday cake^ and ice cream
Mother has been fine today
*Vera Dolton was the daughter of Frank Dolton. Frank & Irene's husband Willard were brothers. Gib (or Geb) was, supposedly, Vera's husband. No one in the family would talk about the relationship & some deny Vera was ever married. I actually met Vera & her older sister Hazel a couple of times. They lived together in a house in Niagara Falls for many years.
^I have to say, that Mildred's chocolate cake that I made yesterday was better the second day. My pastry chef sister suggested I cut the flour to 2 c & add 1/4 c cocoa powder for a moister, more chocolaty cake.
