“Wayne Baldwin is all eyes for Lucile Wightman and can’t see anyone else”

Tues, Feb. 18, 1941

Dear Diary, 

We stayed at Cornwall’s tonight, I mean Lucile & I.

(Aside: Elton sent Wayne a valentine & Wayne copied the verse and sent it to Lucile. It said “Wayne Baldwin is all eyes for Lucile Wightman and can’t see anyone else” That’s unusual for Wayne, I’ll bet.) 

It’s awfully nice. They have the grandest picture of Eloise on the piano (the picture, I mean, is). We all sang. That was fun. Lucile showed them her new Bible. Mr. Cornwall read some from his  book, “Streams from the Mountains.” It has some thought for every day. It’s awfully nice. Oh!, he got to talking about Fanny Farmer Candy being the best and how Mrs. Hardman had to put her prices down to compete. I wanted to tell him about the two pound box Lucile got for her valentine so bad!

Lucile showed me the letter she got. It was signed, Yours truly then the postcript, Love Wayne. She says he’s awfully bossy telling her that. Yes, he was going to take his test today. In other words, he hasn’t any liscense. Mom’ll never know that! 

I got to showing Lucile how Wayne will tell her what that stamp means. We giggled until nearly 12:00. Then it was tomorrow. 

Me.
