Diary entry February 9th 1936

*9th Sunday before Easter, 3rd before Ash Wednesday. The term is sometimes applied to the 70 days starting on Septuagesmia and ending on the Saturday after Easter.
** (Taken from Wikipedia) Archibald Stansfeld Belaney (September 18, 1888 – April 13, 1938), commonly known as Grey Owl, was a British-born conservationist, fur trapper, and writer who pretended to be a First Nations person. While he achieved fame as a conservationist during his life, after his death the revelation that he was not Indigenous, along with other autobiographical fabrications, negatively affected his reputation.
