Today has been much warmer again. Mary V. Green, treasurer of the U.S.O. Fund told me that she had received $2.45 since sending in her report which brings the total amount collected to $920.33

We had a heavy rain today. In Norfolk, it almost reached the proportions of a cloudburst. Street cans were installed for a considerable amount of time.

Clear and Rainy
This morning I stayed home and prepared my weekly report. I promised Mr. George Watkins and Miss Ruth that would meet them today or tomorrow at the bus. They have been to Norfolk- he to the Doctor and she to see her sister. I met the bus today but they did not come. We have had rain off and on today again.

I worked this morning and then met the bus and brought Miss Ruth and Mr. George home. I went back to work this afternoon. I came back home about three o’clock to take Leone to the Doctor. Mama and Evelyn were here so she didn’t go.
Charlie has received his call to go for examination here preparatory to being sent to camp. Mama is of course worried though taking it better than I expected. Of course there is a possibility that he may be deferred. I trust that he will not have to go.

We had a nice Sunday School this morning. There were a few over one hundred fifty present. I went to St. Paul’s Church at eleven a.m. where I preached using as my subject “We Have Found Him”. John 1-45. I went to Mama’s for dinner.
I began today reading again Mrs. Miniver by Jan Struther. I have read it before but didn’t enjoy it a great deal. This time I find more in the mood or something and find it quite delightful. Mrs. Miniver could be any one of a thousand other women so human is she, so realistic. The book is well written with its interesting neatly turned phrasing and its clear concise styling.
