A book’s revelation

[Post for Oct. 1- 5, 1911]

Sun. Oct. 1, 1911
I did not feel very well so did not go out all day. I played the piano & mandolin, read, made some candy and towards night Elizabeth came over for a while. I am reading John Marvel assistant and like it pretty well. It is getting late and I must get to bed!!!

Sick abed today! Finished John Marvel assistant! The character and beliefs of the jew in the book was a wonderfull[sic] revelation to me. I have a far greater respect for the Jews by the character as protraied[sic] in the book and by my love for Miss Hockstein than I ever had before.


Wed. Oct. 4, 1911
Sick! I laid around all day. Wrote the annual B.Y.P.U. report and sent it down to the meeting. This evening Vera staid[sic] with me and we studied and played.

Went back to school. This was election day and I am up for secy-treas. of the musical organization. There are two others up with me so I don’t suppose I’ll get it. It’s quite an honor to have a school office! Dorothy Bagnall and Edythe VanBrook invited me to a “Stag” party they are going to have tomorrow night  I was just crazy to go but papa wants me to go to Allegan tomorrow so I can’t!! The girls are going to be dressed up in boys clothes you know.
