Thursday, June 15, 1911: Wanted to go to Milton today and get some things to wear but mommie wouldn’t go.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma mentioned several times in previous diary entries that she went to Milton by herself, I’m surprised that she didn’t just go alone when her mother won’t go. I suppose that her mother would only pay for whatever Grandma wanted to buy (clothes?) if she went along.
