Today I worked covering the same route as was covered on February 23. Tonight I went to the Court House where a school is in progress being conducted by Mr. Hill of the State Board of Education for fire and air wardens, police, medical workers, etc. After leaving there I went to get Leone and Carole Anne whom I took to Sis before I went to the Court House At Midnight. Mr. Rufus Diggs and I went to the air raid station and stayed until three A.M. when we were relieved by Tolliver Pugh (his spelling) and William Stewart. That didn’t give me much time for sleep.

See route covered February 24th. It was reported today that the ship, Achilles on which Carlton Diggs and Lewis Knight have been working has been torpedoed. I trust that the news is false. I am sure their wives are almost frantic. Axis submarines are taking a severe toll along the coast.
Tonight I went back to the class started last night. Tonight it met at the high school.

Thank Heaven the news about the Achilles proved false. She sailed from Delaware for Norfolk this morning according to a report from Johns Brothers- owners and operators of the ship.
I went to Church this afternoon and watered my calla lily which I carried there a few Sundays ago. It has two blooms- one fading and the other not quite opened. I didn’t go to the class tonight as Mr. Edwin took Miss Sarah to Middlesex to Dr. Fleet and Leone and Carole Anne were alone. Naomi and Elkanah came by for a few minutes. They are to be married Friday night.

Friday, March 27, 1942
Today I have ben working down New Point. Tonight I went back to the School which was finished tonight. Naomi and Elkanah were married tonight. Charlie went over to York County for the marriage.
Hold on to your happiness with both hands for it is a pretty elusive thing. Don’t ever be too proud to say “I was wrong”. Give to each other the best that is in you and live alone. Don’t live with in-laws it is slow death to a marriage.

Cloudy and Rainy
I worked this morning. This afternoon I prepares a part for the Easter Rise Service. I couldn’t find anything suitable so I prepared a part myself. The composition I’m afraid is rather poor. This wind is to the East and it has rained practically all day.
