Saturday, October 25, 1912: I’ve resolved to do something if carried out, I think will prove very beneficial to me at least. I’m going to try anyway and see the result.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Hmm—What was the resolution? The previous day’s diary entry mentioned a “convention” in McEwensville—though it wasn’t clear what type of convention it was.
If it was some sort of religious event—maybe Grandma resolved to be a better, more religious person.
The convention may have been sponsored by one of the churches in McEwensville.
