Happy Birthday, Grandma!
From my Grandmother's diary: "Eighteen years old! Holiday for Battle of Concord & Lexington. Met B at 1 o'clock went to races, Cameron won. We walked or sat around resevoir all afternoon. Wore my new long pongee coat Ma gave me for birthday gift. Lavender silk bag from Mrs. Marshall, Dollar from Aunty; chamois gloves from Nat; lace stockings from Mary. Card from Margaret, letter from Eva Dill. Birthday supper, B stayed. Surprize party on me! Weston and Marion got it up. He jollied me on phone pretended he was Mr. Stebben (one I met Sat. at dance). Meanwhile party came in back door and to the parlor. I walked in "oh, say" to Bert but there was the crowd."
