Thurs., 5/29 Finished dress first. Received two letters. One most laughable & the other the same as usual. Read about smallpox breaking out in hospital so I shall stay away this week so I will not receive a trademark.

Fri., 5/30 Decoration day & I stayed at home with my dad & petite frère and soeur*. The other two went away, the wonderful years to them are these. Went to movies in the evening. Hardest work today was letter writing. Little bro John, sister Ruth. (*French for “little brother and sister”).
