Got up at noon today. Just had time to eat breakfast and dress when Jakey came up. Nilly and Frank followed and we played cards till 5:30. Jakey stayed for supper and Mr. And Mrs. Moziarz also ate with us. Yvette and I disagreed about where to go and she and Billy went to a stage show, while Frank, Peggy, Jake and I ended up at Bray’s. We had a grand time and danced a lot to Vic Carly’s orchestra. I had my old fashioned and Jacob too and after I while I began to feel gay.

Oh my gawd! I just love it!!
