22 February 1957
Well, well! George Washington’s birthday, and I just sent Billy off to the library at Arlington Branch Library. This is the first day Billy works all day at the library. I fussed about him a bit until he almost lost patience with me until I told him, “After all this is the first day I have packed his lunch and sent him off to work!”
Mr. Carter called Wednesday afternoon. He wanted to know whether Nancy was still interested in the gardening job with him at Longfellow [School]. She is supposed to come in to see him before 4 P.M. at the Gardening Room at Memorial [School] to fill out her withholding tax form so he can put in her application.
Nancy is delighted. Bill tried to tell her she should be sure and get a good hourly rate. Nancy fired up at this. Secretly, I believe she would work for nothing, just for the job at the Gardens at Longfellow.
