January 26, 1936  “It is awfully cold here.”

Trudel returns to diary style in her notes:


Awfully cold for weeks. 20˚ below 0 Fahrenheit = about 30˚ below Celsius. And we are making straw and light felt hats.

Garbo  - Karenina

A Spring Hat in Winter

I may have to have my tonsils removed anyhow in Spring. The doctors here are all money hungry and so far I have not found one I would trust. A school friend of Leonard’s has an apothecary, not a drugstore, and we go to him for advice instead of a doctor.

We recently saw “Anna Karenina” with Greta Garbo and Fredric March!! I did like the book much better.

Had a bad cold but I am OK again.

We saw “Mutiny on the Bounty”

and laughed a lot seeing Eddy Cantor in “Strike me Pink.”
