TODAY In 1904 - Excerpt from Oliver's Diary

From the Diary of Oliver Morton Wallen, my great grandfather:

1904: June 12 – Sunday: "At home, a very lonesome day. Sarah and Sula are asleep. Willie and Thomas are playing and I am writing this. It is now 2:30 P.M. Why dont people go to church and S.S. and live like God wants them too. May God bless my little children and help them live right." 

(S.S. = Sunday School. Sarah is wife, Sula and Thomas are their first set of twins and Willie was my grandfather, their oldest child.)
