|Gertrude's brother, Arthur Russell Hitchings ( 1897 - 1967),|
married Ethel Elizabeth Coleman in 1920. He served
in Germany during World War 1, just a few
years before these diary entries were written.
This is the 20th installment of my grandmother's diary from 1920. Her name was Gertrude Matilda Hitchings (1905 - 2001) and she lived on Elliott Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. I'm transcribing small sections of this tiny 3" diary, with its minuscule handwriting, and posting it at my blog every Monday. You can read the first installment of the diary HERE.
NOTE: Gertrude went riding (bikes? trolleys?) with her friend Rozella. She visited her married sister Helen. On Saturday she went shopping with her sister Eunice and friend Ida. Who is Frank (and she underlined this name)? A new boyfriend?
