1. Presumably an artist's foundry, rather than an industrial one. Can't find any mention online of a foundry owned by someone names Jensen in the Akron OH area during this time. Could be a local artist?
2. I can only imagine the conversation after losing her pocketbook - especially since her husband isn't giving her the money he promised and that she is borrowing money from her daughters weekly!
3. Imdb.com lists a movie claled "Hot Water" released in October 1924 - likely this is what they
say. This is a film starring Harold Lloyd.
This is the plot synopsis they give:"
Episodic look at married life and in-law problems. Adventures include a ride on a crowded trolley with a live turkey; a wild spin in a new auto with the in-laws in tow; and a sequence in which Hubby accidently chloroforms his mother-in-law and is convinced that he has killed her. When she begins sleep-walking, he thinks that she has returned to haunt him."
Our writer thought this movie was "not so good" - guess she doesn't like comedies!
4. This is money given to the kids for Sunday School and Church - she doesn't list amounts. Maybe she is still seething amount the lost $.75!
