Sat., 21 Display of Northern LIghts last night—a wonderful sight! Morning devotions. A nice day. Dumas comes. I make 2 pies, start dinner. Wilma takes Helen & I up to Charlotte. We locate the Barker place where Aunt Patience lived & died & after them the David Dartt family. The old house has burned & left an unsightly cellar hole. Grace & I attend Grace Middlebrook’s funeral. The D.A.R. attend together & go to the grave. Tuttle takes us over & Sue Booth brings us home. Helen, Grace & I play Bridge in the evening. Letter from Gertrude. The third night of heavy, white frost.
According to my “Vermont Weather” book, September of 1929 had record-breaking cold.
