Tuesday, March 25, 1913: Didn’t get home from practice till about half past eleven. So you see I didn’t get my lessons out either.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Whew—11:30 was late to be out on a school night.
Grandma played the role of Chloe, the servant, in the upcoming class play. The play was less than two weeks away. I suppose that the cast still had a lot to do to prepare for the performance on April 5.
I think that Grandma often walked the mile and a half home after play practice. But, since it went so late, hopefully someone gave her a ride home in a buggy.
