Sun - Easter
Went to S.S. & church [102 at S.S.] It was actually hot. To moms for dinner. To the woods with Helen and Joe Parks. Came home & went  to C'Ville for "double-dips". They spent the evening here. Boy, but I'm sore & tired tonite.

Apr. 14
Mon- Went down to Moms today. It is still warm. Mildred & Windy have been here twice when we weren't home. Mildred came down tonite. She doesnt feel very well.

Chad Hanna was a 1940 circus melodrama set in 1840's upstate New York and starred Henry Fonda and Dorothy Lamour.

Mamie was referring to attendance at Sunday school rather than the temperature when she wrote 102. That's impressive for a small town church even in the more religious times of the early 20th Century.
