pictures in all but too far away to be satisfactory. We were in the Grandstand some of the time, & some down by the fence. Mr. Cartwright came & talked to us - I like him. He reminds me a trifle of Mr. Hodges. During the first heat of the "One mile open - Ameteur" - a man fell & was evidently very seriouly hurt. After a long time they put him in a carriage, but he was unable to sit up. Another man in the 2 mile professional broke his nose or cut his lip or something - falling bet. 1/2 & 3/4 mile (last mile). This was a nice race - a handicap - with Bald at scratch & McDonnell at 110 yds. It was fun to see Bald "hump himself at the start - One man - Newhouse, Buffalo - got a long start - was 'way ahead on the mile & on to the 1 3/4 & even on the home stretch was yards a head - but Eddie Bald & Tom Cooper (The contests were really between them) just cannon-balled past him & simply sped together for yards. Just before they crossed the line Cooper sprinted a half a yard or so ahead & was a hero, of course. Well, I guess I'm wrong after all. Cooper wasn't in that race. It was "Otto Mayo of Erie, Pa" Cooper won in the 1/4 & 1/2 mile - all he entered with Bald - & was 'way ahead. McDonnell kept up but didn't distuinguish himself (the 2 mile was his only race). We came away
