Feb. 26th Wednesday I received "P.P.C." calls at the office & home to-day. Edith - Ned - Mary - Frank D. &c. J.G. was nice & J.W. offered me a string of L. tickets (which I took, of course) and told me to "look out for bunco men"(!). After bidding good-bye to the "force" I shopped a little with Ned and Edith and then came home & after supper dressed & packed. Frank Davis came with some eggs & Mary, before he had gone. Claude got home from his lesson about 10 and we started about 10:40. It was a glorious moonlight night - clear & cold. Our train was on time (11:23) and we had the car to ourselves with the exception of a single man. Feb. 27th Thursday I had lower berth 7 and went to bed soon - & slept tolerably well as everything was very "comfy". I woke up and looked out to recognize Catskill, early in the morning - so watched for "Obercliffe" at Malden & saw the upper house and the familiar landmarks of our last summer's drives & visit. Got up about eight - watched the frozen Hudson & the other things - so lovely last summer & so gray & cold now. We got to Weehawken at 10 in a cold fog & so across the ferry with a group of interesting people in furs - no, only the children were interesting - & pretty. Took the car across to the Grand Union & found by observation that walking looked bad. There was evidently snow yesterday, as "chefs" (that's their costume) were clearing it away. The big Manhattan Hotel, at 42nd & Madison Ave. is going up to a tremendous heights & looms over everything. It is right opposite my window (#384 on Park Ave side - a very pleasant room, & Claude's right next.) After getting our rooms we had a very late breakfast (with an undesirable bride & groom at the next table) & then started out for a walk. Down B'way. Stopped at Garrick's & got tickets for Jno. Drew & at Fifth Ave. & got the last two $1.50 tickets together for Duse. A long line was waiting. We
