"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

January 27, 1911

Big joke – took the suede shoes back and changed them again.  Went to Education class, German, and Gym, came back at five o’clock, bathed, combed my hair and dressed, went down to the reception the Senior Girls gave for Mrs. Barker.  Wore the suede shoes.

This same night went to a reception our Sunday-school teacher gave for us.  Mrs. Foley came by for us and Annabel. Ethel, Annie,  Edna, Jessie Mit, and I went to Mrs. Humphrey’s with her.  It was muddy, but I enjoyed the walk.  Mrs. Foley is lovely, and we had such a pleasant time at Mrs. Humphrey’s.  We played some games, and some got souvenirs, but I didn’t get one.  We had to guess these things from objects scattered about the room that were numbered.
