Amanuensis Monday - Grace Ware Holbrook Journal Entry - Post 11

June 6th [1918]
     Mother & Michael went early in the car on their way to Boston for two or three days stay. They planned to stop at Camp Devens to see Cabot on the way down. Later, I took the car down to the repair shop - as the shaft & bearing were broken. At the Episcopal Parish House there was a meeting of Public Health workers of the County, to discuss the possibilities of cooperating & organizing with the Red Cross, for a larger field of work & workers. Miss Mary Gardner spoke then & also in the afternoon - in an appeal for the public health work. Miss van Patten & Miss Wakefield gave outlines of their work among others, & all was well & clearly expressed.
     I met Mr. Moffit to talk over plans for camp etc - & made beginnings at least toward a settlement of ideas.
