It has been cold and disagreeable all day today. I worked sections through the Glebe, Court House, Tabernacle, Laban, Beaverlett, Sarah, Peary and to Port Haywood. Junie Dell gave me a bunch of lilacs to take to Carole Anne. Miss Maggie Ward was in bed with lumbago. This afternoon I picked up a colored boy who had just gotten notice to appear before the Draft Board in Gloucester tonight. It was after five and he was trying to get to Mathews to catch the bus. I took him there. Came on duty at the Air Observation Station at midnight (Mr. Rufus Diggs and I). It is now 1:45 a.m.

I worked the New Point section today. It still continues unseasonably cool. Received an invitation to a luncheon to be given Friday by the High School Home Economics Class at the Home Economics Cottage. The other members of the Board of Supervisors and the members of the school board together with some other are to be present.

Today I attended my first meeting of the Board of Supervisors. The main things that came were the budget for the new year which we adopted, a discussion of and adoption of a report by Mr. Gray of the State Highway Department regarding road improvements in the county this year. The members of the Board, the School Board, the Clerk, Deputy Clerk, Superintendent of Schools, Principal of the High School, had dinner at the High School in the Home Economics Building. The girls had prepared a very fine meal- fruit cocktail, hot fried chicken, string beans, potato chips, beets, pickle, tomato and lettuce salad, hot coffee and apple pie.

I worked all day today finished collections and came home and set out a flowering almond and a yellow double japonica or crocus rose which of these names is correct I do not know. I have heard them called by both and both of them may be wrong.

We had a large crowd for Sunday School this morning- 192. I believe. We also had a nice collection $20.22. Our people are very liberal as far as Sunday School work is concerned. Carole Anne and I went to Mama’s for dinner. Naomi and Elkanah were there as they came last night. I went to preaching this afternoon and tonight I went to Shiloh- Methodist Church on Gwynn’s Island.
