Author: Mildred Deyo
Abstract: This diary is dated from June 18, 1914 to September 9, 1914. It is the last volume in a series of thirty written by Mildred Deyo. Mildred Deyo's days are filled with playing bridge, watching tennis matches at the local tennis club, going for walks, and going to church. Mildred often visits family and friends. She also travels to New York City to shop. In her diary, she writes about the outbreak of World War I. She states that Germany will fight anyone, and has declared war on France and Russia. She says it is only a matter of time before England is forced into the war. During the summer, Mildred and her family spend time in upstate New York at Twilight Lake. They take walks in the woods, tour the mountains, play bridge, and go to movies in the local town. Mildred decides to finish her diary after this trip to Twilight Lake.
