|Hepatica - from the buttercup family, native to the eastern USA|
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.
Went to walk with Ella, Russ & Ethel went home
NOTE: According to my mother, Gertrude's mother. Florence Etta, was sick with tuberculosis most of her childhood. Gertrude mentions her mother being sick many times in this diary. Ellsworth is Helen's husband.
NOTE: More mention of the mysterious Mr. Lowell but this time "at the schoolhouse". Was he a teacher? More hepatica, too.
