Mae insisted on our staying over a day, so we all walked up to the Greenleaf farm in the lovely moonlight and Edith and I telephoned home. Allie Parsons was there and showed me her silk quilt &c. and "thought she heard men's voices" out side (John & Billy at the pump!) and we "jollied" deGraff about her a good deal. Edith and I slept in a front room facing the lake and a big casement window was opened wide all night. July 13 Sun. Sunday was a lazy day - warm - but a fine breeze - we spent most of it on the big front piazza facing the lake and watching the sailboats &c.&c. John and Billy and "Alphonse" were very entertaining and I don't know when I've laughed so continuously. Of course we did a good deal of eating - dinner and supper (in the kitchen) and reluctantly went home before dark Sunday night. July 14 Mon.
Margaret & Amelie Steinhausen born 1:30 & 1:45 p.m.
This was an eventful day in the neighbor- hood. At noon 1:30 and 1:45 arrived the Theo - Meta Steinhausen twins! First Margaret and then Amelie - and "Aunt" Amelie and John away! Margaret weighed five pounds and Amelie four and a half and dear Mother acts like a proud Grand- Mama!
