1939 Spent the day looking for people + not finding ‘em. I’ll have to go out to school tomorrow! – long time at my window to-night thinking about home-coming. (If only I were sure of a date!)
1940 Sun 12:30 I’d almost forgotten how it felt to be “bossed” – well I remember now, vividly – Maybe it was my fault – but I don’t think so… E. LEFT ON 5:30 TRAIN. – D.J. TOOK ME for a ride tonight we ate popcorn. I left a note for Bill
1941 11:00? (RUSSIA HAS PRACTICALLY FALLEN… IS AT LEAST WEAKENED TERRIBLY… WHERE IS THIS INSANITY TO END?) – I CERTAINLY DIDN’T CURB MY APPETITE AS I HAD INTENDED TO – TSK, TSK. – DAY DIDN’T GO BADLY AT ALL… BOB + I LISTENED TO BACH’S CONTATA + FUGUE… WROTE ELEANOR
1943 WED I’M GETTING MORE + MORE organized AGAIN, I THINK… [THANK GOODNESS…] PEG + I WENT FOR A WALK ALONG THE RIVER – SO BEAUTIFUL + SHINY WITH LIGHTS… HIGH SCHOOL BOYS WANTED TO PICK US UP. WE SHYLY DEMURRED… ATE WITH HERMAN. HE WAS VERA CURIOUS ABOUT Leonard.
