More of Betty's Diary

We used to live in the city, but this is the country. We kind of like it here only Aunt Lucy aint't nice without meaning not to be. They call her an old maid here and say that she was disappointed in love. Granny's awful nice and there are some nice children neighbors to play with.

We had an awfully nice Christmas, a tree and papa gave each of us a new sled, and Paul an air riffle, and Aunt Lucy mad. Paul is tickled and so am I because I've used it but that's a secret. Aunt Lucy says there ain't no Santa Claus but Paul and I don't believe it. Our mama used to say there was one, and he always filled our stockings when we hung them up empty. They'd be chuck full in the morning. We told Aunt Lucy we would prove it to her, but she said we needn't hang them up. Granny and Papa said let them if they want to Lucy so we did, and sure enough they were full, both of them with candy, nuts and oranges. I said now what do you think Aunt Lucy? She didn't say nothing. I guess she was ashamed. To be continued
