piece of Los Angeles history as the writer shares her experiences about dating, dances, locations, and heading off to college for the very first time. Enjoy!

After having read and seen the play ” The Admiral Chilton” I find that I have a very “commonplace” schoolgirl longing to be cast on a desert island with some interesting and handsome male!
I think it would be loads of fun to make little notes in my diary from time-to-time, telling of my adventures and progress on that desert island. Of course it would all be a very advanced state of imagination- that’s all. I intend to have it after the style of Sternes “Tyrstem Shandy”. I hear declare that I shall change the name, character, and looks of my “hero” whenever I please to. I have already planned the details of how I would happen to be there. I’ll start it sometime soon, Maybe….
