“Not very pleasant. remained at home during the day. did not attend singing school. finished Fannie’s toilett sett (sic). Rain. Otis is at home sick.”  – Hattie E.F. D.

Notes: Otis is Hattie’s brother James Otis, 4 years younger than she.
– “toilett sett” is probably ‘toilet set,’ a set of grooming items, such as mirror, brush, and comb.
