Went to Otsego this noon. and Edna and I visited and then she went down town and left me with Ardith and the baby. It’s the first time I’ve ever been left alone with him [the baby] but I wheeled him vigorously all most every minute and he behaved very well.
This evening Will Merritt came up he found out yesterday from Edna that I was coming to town. He brought me a grand box of chocolates wasn’t that fine of him?? It’s the first time a boy has ever brought me a box of chocolates and I think its just great. We cracked nuts and made Xmas things then played “Bunco,” we had a very enjoyable evening. He’s a regular society boy though plays cards, dances and all the rest of it. I have to be kind of careful to keep my distance with him.

Well I embroidered and tended the baby today and then this noon I went [to] Allegan! Went right to the church and practiced hard for tomorrow and next Saturday night. We had a lot of fun too. Then I went up to Mrs. R’s to stay with her this week. She and I were alone this evening. And we embroidered thick and last. I certainly had a grand time yesterday and today its just lovely here at Redman’s.
