Text

October 27, 1917
The Seniors gave a party a Hallow'een party down in the gymnasium and everyone who had a lers told us dime was invited. We danced and played games and had no end of fun. Several good story-tellers told us ghost stories that would make the shivers run up and down your back, and best of all we had some gypsies to tell our fortunes. I learned the interesting fact that I am more intellectual than sentimental, that I shall be afflicted with chronic insanity and commit suicide. This handsome gentleman is my future husband. (No wonder I shall commit suicide)

The gypsy fortune tellers serenading their Queen.
