February 6 & 7, 1930

Evelyn Forrest's Trip to Palestine

February 6, 1930The Diary of Evelyn Forrest’s Trip to Palestine
Thursday, February 6, 1930

What will today bring of joy or sadness? Richard had to rush away before nine to meet an appointment, and I had coffee and toast alone in my room. Purchased a Ford Station car for $750 cash. Praise the Lord! Mr. Geo. Bell certainly was happy, for he is to have the use of it for his station in Africa. He had been praying earnestly for just such a car.

(Lunch at the hotel with Mr. Shuman and Geo. Bell.) Wrote cards to students while Richard attended Board meetings. Shopped a little at Macy’s. Dinner alone together Roseffa, wonderful English mutton chops. Took a long walk then back to Hotel Lincoln and retired.

Our last day before sailing and there’s so much to do. Richard could not wait for breakfast. So, I had to eat alone—coffee and toast served in my room. Wrote cards and did not go out for lunch. [Received] mail from home. Visited with Emma Beere, Ethel Marsh, Elizabeth Kennedy and all the office force at 260. Finished our shopping at Macy’s and [Richard and I] dictated letters to Elizabeth. Then took her to dinner.

6:00 p.m. Filled my date with the chiropodist and certainly feel better. Farewell meeting with the Tabernacle young people. February 7, 1930
Both [of us] spoke briefly. Visited with the Brubakers and Watsons and then signed letters. 1:30 a.m. All packed and ready for the boat.
