Nora Gowdy Diaries - 1900
The wedding went off all right but I tired out.
|Nora's brother Albert gets married?|
|"Monday 8 a.m. July 16"|
|Grand Rapids, MI
A nasty rainy morning. We were to move from our present place, 75 South Jefferson Street where we have been since the first of May, to our new home, recently purchased at 117 North Division. We are here at last. We have three carpets down and we're both tired out. Both worked all day yesterday even if it was Sunday.
|My 29th birthday|
|Love at home in p.m., not very well and neither am I so did not get very much done. He now works for the Herald Butch Shoe Company of this place, Grand Rapids. He gave me an image for our clock for a birthday present.|
|Mrs. Warrel called upon me, our former landlady.|
|Mrs. Warrel here again today.|
|Mama came tonight to remain indefinitely.|
|Mama, Love, Legrand and I went to bed late... their supper. Had a good time but am oh so tired.|
|Mama and I feel about used up today. Love does but little work. Will wash tomorrow, have clothes soaking. Very hot and dry.|
|Am not a bit well||Nora is almost nine months pregnant with Hiram Gowdy Morris, her second son.|
|Sick this a.m., have not been well in a long time.|
|We went out to Grace Cleveland's for dinner today, had a lovely time as usual.|
