the car (which came, luckily). A little brighter at noon but walks still bad. The boys are all busy getting the draughting room ready to move. Tonight it had cleared off. Ned had a "chafing dish party", Edith, Mae, John, Frank Davis, Claude & I. (Claude didn't come till late.) We sat and talked in the "parlor" a while and then went in Ned's room so John could smoke & she began on the chafing dish. John read sonnets aloud & then love letters to himself. He said the "Throbbed". We had a very nice supper - chicken & sweet bread croquettes, coffee, rolled bread & butter, olives and "HP" toast - Sat a long time at table & went home rather late - to dream dreams. Mch. 21. Sat. A bright nice day. Snow everywhere & white & clean this this morning, but beginning to melt. Morning day at the office - the draughting & stock rooms went and many things from our offices, but we don't go till Tuesday. I packed J.G's books & things after dinner. Mary came up for 10 minutes chat. She still has a bad cold. About 4. p.m. we all (J.W. Gilmore, Miss R. & I) went up to the new offices & tried to settle a little. I went up into the blueprint room & on the roof with Gilmore. Came home awfully tired and late. Didn't do much this evening. Mch. 22 Sunday Mother's 36th wedding anniversary. I gave her a new umbrella, & Papa "Merchant of Venice".
