Fri., 2/14 Received sad news about Uncle Sam’s death. Received a letter from big Ben saying he hoped to return to U.S. I was wondering if I would really enjoy being away from my home and not get homesick if I would lucky enough to go [to] Europe. Received a Valentine was very happy. Had to go to bank and get Pa ready to go to Pittsburgh at night. Rainy day today.
Sat., 2/15 Work as usual but had trying time with children for they were all home and the fun begins. Made a cake and went to town with Olive, burned all around town and went to show later without supper but filled up on chocolate candy. Rain today.
