1940 3:15 Well, Frederick has practically committed himself... I was really surprised he'd go so far... I doubt that he is anything but sincere, and it's a little confusing - First I want him, then don't - He was so damn sweet; I think it would be fun being married to him, but yet there are so many things that would prevent my even considering something like that - I'm damn sleepy!
1941 11:55 SUNDAY - SLEPT LATE - CLEANED MY ROOM, WASHED CLOTHES... MOTHER + I WENT TO CHRISTMAS VESPERS... LEONARD CAME + SAT BY ME... FIREWORKS - IF THEY WERE HALF AS VIOLENT FOR HIM AS FOR ME, HE CAN'T HOLD OUT VERY MUCH LONGER... WHEN HE LOOKS AT ME, A THOUSAND PEOPLE DISINTEGRATE AND THERE IS NO ONE AT ALL EXCEPT WE TWO-
