Amanuensis Monday: May 18-20 1943

There were only a few entries for 1943 in my grandmother’s journal. They are crossed out and I believe it’s because they aren’t from her. These three entries have different writing, different scenarios (like a job) and different people mentioned than when it was my grandmother’s voice. Plus, one of these entries mentions going to a show with Mary Jane, who is my grandmother. I think these were crossed out when this person gave the journal to Mary. I’m wondering if these were from Betty, my grandmother’s older sister.

Worked today. Took inventory. Maxine McPhetias called me up. She is really a terrible girl. Wrote Stan a letter but am praying that he will forgive me.

      I agree. I’ll have to see if I can find some old letter’s from Betty to compare handwriting.
