I didn’t go to church but went down with fear and trembling to S.S. Oh I was scared blue to get up and say my speech so were Berril and Mary. I got through some how it was fearfully scarry[sic] to see all those hundreds of people looking at you. The boy I went up with forgot to wait and let me go down the steps before he did and I had to tag after him like a little dunce! Berrill forgot to say the first paragraph of her speech but no one would know the difference. In the afternoon I read and then Vera came over and we played and talked we opened our can of punch Ha Ha! and had punch & popcorn.

Well this has been a regular blizard[sic]! Snowed and blew somthing[sic] awful. This morning I didn’t get up until late then I practiced and wrang the clothes for mamma. This afternoon I took my music lesson and enjoyed it pretty well. When I got back I played with Ardith and tried to write a letter to Verna. After supper I finished the letter and wrote to Mrs. Redman. She has invited me to stay with her when I go to Allegan Sat. wont[sic] that be lovely? Bernice Hoadley can’t come she’s sick! I feel terribly bad about it

After dinner we got ready and went down town “shoping”?[sic] we went to look at hats and went to at least 15 stores we had lots of fun and got in some funny places. We went into Harveys and had an orange ice we also went to the library.
Gilmore’s were[was] having their opening today and they had a living model showing off the harem skirt Oh! it was the limit just crowds were there to see her. They had Fisher’s orchestra and the music was beautiful. In the evening Vera came over and we girls made divinity candy and placed[sic] Bunco.
