Didn’t fall asleep till one last night. Nellie, Caz, Jake and I played tennis and then had a picnic at Mt. Tom. Jake knew I was peeved but he offered no explanation. He tried all the time to be pleasant but I treated him politely and that’s all. I know he suffered. Walked me home and wouldn’t let me go to bed. We sat on the back hall steps for an hour and a half but I couldn’t weaken, much as I wanted to. Finally at good-night he tried to kiss me and I turned my lips away. He said good-bye and sort of slammed the door. I didn’t fall asleep until almost three.
And what was it that got her peeved?
