January 31, 1932

Sun., 31  Rise late. Do the morning work. Get a chicken dinner. Grace attends church & has to make funeral sprays all afternoon. Hear Fosdick (static terrible) and Schumann-Heink.   She is 71 years old.  Growing cold. Mockingbird stays a long time and looks cold and sorry. Write the Bulletin.

 

The Schumann-Henik interview–on her 72nd birthday– is interesting, and a bit sinister, as she was all about authority and limiting the freedom of children!
