Tuesday, July 14, 1936

plesant and hot but coller breeze-
Aunty and I alone all day
Rec'd card from Clara mailed from Syracuse station 11-30 last night*-
found Harry's glasses in his coat pocket-
Made 12 glasses of currant jelly
picked the currants in the garden
and spread out on the grass Aunty's north bedroom carpet-

Front of the postcard Clara sent Irene

Back of above postcard. Postmark was stamped at 2:30 am on July 14, 1936

*"11:30 A.M. Dear Irene, Will you please look in Harry's coat and see if you can find the [glasses]. He thinks they are in the lining. Mother is fine All Aboard. Love to Auntie & you Clara" If anyone can tell me what Clara wrote instead of glasses, I would be very grateful.

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