Sat., 10/4 Ruth's 8th birthday. Ruth's great day. We carried decorations out in red, white and blue favors were victory dolls. Games were played and prizes given. Ruth was in her glory one sweet memory for her. Would have liked to have gone to see the King of Belgium at a Public affair but my little guests were late leaving after the party. Stayed home rest of evening. Received a letter from Lena.
Sun., 10/5 Lazy today. Nothing to do after dinner. Went to church with Edith and retired rather early. Pa went calling upon Uncle. Glad they have got over the misunderstanding for life is too short to quarrel. Hearts are too precious to break and after we go, we wish the garden of flowers to bloom each revealing another good variety.
