Upon Which Lennie Has His Seventeenth Birthday

Tuesday, March 8, 1898
My birthday.
Prof joined the M.W.A.
(Sorry! I didn't get this posted until the day AFTER Lennie's birthday! Lennie is seventeen years old! Unless you're figuring from the Year 2011 in which case Lennie would be 130 years old this year!)

Wednesday, March 9,
Show in town tonight.
I went to church with you know.
(Lennie is still sweet on "you know" but we haven't a clue as to her name. It is noteworthy that he is walking his girl to Wednesday night church.)

Thursday, March 10, 1898
Snowed in afternoon about 2 inches.
Went to free show.
It was all right.

Friday, March 11, 1898
Nice day.
Went to show.
Then to J.O.G.T.

Saturday, March 12,
Big snow in town.
Went to show.
Cost 10 cents.


  1. A dime?!!! Oh my prices were out of control even in 1898!

  2. Wonder if that dime was just for his ticket or if he took "you know"! That does seem a little pricy for that time period.
