July 9, 1947

Cloudy & rain.

Nannie here to spend the day. Neida & Bill here awhile.

Lillie is still here.

Original handwritten version of the diary entry for No. 5184, for today's month and day.

Lillie is like, “I’m here for the fancy work and I shall not leave until the fancy work is complete.”

About my little diary project

The goal is to post entries from the diaries and journals of my ancestors, willing friends and family, myself, and found public sources like a diary my godmother discovered in a Kentucky resale shop. I want to organize them by writer, date, and where possible, geographic location. The reason: I want to honor and create a shared, minimally curated source of daily accounts of life from ordinary people. If you’d like to participate, contact me for guidelines.
