Book of Dates - Post 1

My grandmother, Grace Ware (Holbrook) Haskell kept a book of dates from 1926 to 1945. Her entries were quite regular at times and sporadic at other times. I plan on posting her entries as a regular part of my blog. Some of the handwritten entries are very hard to decipher, but I will do my best.

At the start of 1926, a year before she married my grandfather, Merrill Haskell, it appears that Grace was in France and Italy.
