|Hoogerzeil, Hitchings and Healey family members in Beverly, Massachusetts|
This is the 8th installment of my grandmother's diary from 1920. Her name was Gertrude Hitchings (1905 - 2001), and she was living on Elliott Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. The diary is a tiny 3", and every Monday I publish a new section, with transcriptions of the tiny handwriting. You can read the first installment HERE. I'll post more of this diary every week for Amanuensis Monday.

NOTE: Here Gertrude's sister, Helen was visiting with her baby. Apparently Gertrude took the baby for an outing to the A&P (the local grocery store). Her two sisters Mill [Mildred] and Eunice went "to the pictures" [the moving picture shows]. The next day Eunice went to North Beverly. I can't figure out Harold's last name, but he had a "swell" party.
NOTE: Gertrude mentions her friends Marion and Ella. Her parents are at brother Russell's in Lynn, again, and her 17 year old sister is with her married sister Helen on Tuesday. Gertrude went to Helen's on Wednesday.
