November 24, birthdays for Oscar Robertson, Katherine Heigl, Sarah Hyland
Greetings, Brooklyn. Today is the 328th day of the year.
ON THIS DAY IN 1929, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Still Plan Visits to Priest’s Grave as Closing Nears.”
The article focused on the closing of a cemetery in Massachusetts, which housed a famous grave said to give cures for ailments to those who prayed at it.
“Miss Lena Klein, 22, of 175 Beach 87th St., Rockaway Beach, believes faith may bring an end to 20 years of suffering and yesterday announced her purpose of kneeling in prayer at the shrine from which a number of miraculous cures have been reported,” the Eagle reported. “[She] hopes to throw away crutches she has been forced to use as the result of a fall when she was 2 years old.”
