February 19, 1938 Saturday
P.P. Collected. Loafed. In p.m. I went to movie at Scenic with Earnie. Read the exciting account of the fall of the Bastille in Dumas’ “Ange Pitou.” We are still having awfully warm weather for this season – no snow at all. Pa traded our ’36 Ford V-8 for a ’27 Chevrolet and 4 or 5 hundred $ in cash. He plans to trade in the Chevy and get a ’38 deLuxe Ford.

Slept well and late. Went to S.S. and church. In p.m. we went for a ride in the ’27 Chevy and liked it so well that we may keep it until fall so Laura and I can learn to drive on it. In evening went to Keene City Band rehearsal. Yesterday I fixed up an old watch I got last year so that it runs fairly well.
