The Delia Mahon Collection
Delia Mahon - 5th or 6th class student
We got our summer vacation on the 21st of July. The weather was so fine then we could enjoy ourselves out doors as well as in doors.
We had a lot of hay cut down and as we had men working, I had to help mother with the housework. I could also go to the woods as they are quite near. It was beautiful there, the weather being so fine.
The mushrooms were also out. I enjoyed myself gathering them and afterwards eating them.
The school was opened on the 21st of August.
