Girls dressing up!

Week of September 5, 1909

 September Sunday 5   Went to Church and S.S. I stayed upstairs today and Mrs Hodge had the class. In the afternoon I read and in the evening also. I wrote a letter to Oliver but was to tired of writing to write any others. I wonder if I will ever read this book when I get old and if I will be able to remember the circumstances. I certainly hope I won’t be poor and if I am rich I am going to do lots of good with my money

 Monday 6  Labor Day! All the Dewey’s were away except Cornelia and she asked Rosamond and I up to spend the afternoon and evening & Super & All night  I couldn’t stay all night but Rosamond did. Oh we had such a lot of fun. I wish I could tell all we did. Cornelia dressed up in Florence’s Bride’s maid dress and had a wedding. We served a very swell luncheon to Mr. & Mrs. Dewey.  I was hostess and Cornelia & Rosamond were dressed as men waiters. It was [illegible]
