Thirza Pidgeon’s 1937 World Tour – 10 Dec: Auckland, sick
Friday, 10 December 1937
Invited Maude, Mill and Hilda into town for afternoon tea, but too sick to keep this appointment. I just layed on the bed.
[This was Thirza’s last entry in her journal apart from various notations of Bridge wins and losses, names and addresses and accommodation expenses for North American road trip. It is not known exactly when Thirza returned home to Sydney from Auckland. I have not yet been able to locate any travel record for 21 December. Adding to the confusion are some photographs of family members upon which is written Christmas Day 1937. Given that these were Thirza’s negatives it is suspected that she revised her travel plans home from 21 December till some time after Christmas Day.]
