Dora + Willie go to school. All go down to Frank Bellis for a variety wedding. Ma finishes her dress and goes to Warsaw to the Missionary meeting. I begin my calico dress. Uncle Lawrence, Ed, Viola + I all go down to Dundee." The 5 x 3½ inch book has about 130 or so entries and save for some general ageing is overall G+.
