Lives of the Saints – War

3 Sept 1939: “[W]alked as far as Chester’s. Nettie called me in there & I got a ride down to church with them. … I went over to Jennie’s for supper & we all went to church again at the Corner at 7:30. Quite a few out tonight but not many this afternoon. [Howard Grimmer] took his text from Nehemiah 4th chapter & 17th verse: ‘The Builders worked with one hand & held a weapon with the other’. Heard this morning that Eng[land] had declared war on Germany & so everyone is upset about it all.”
