1895.
Sept. 7. Sat. No half holiday today, alas. Stopped to see Mary this noon - & Ned. Later we 3 all happened to meet on Plymouth Ave with our wheels & talked up a trip tomorrow but it threatens rain. At five (or before) I rode Diana up to Davis' & had a nice chat with Mr. D. on the piazza before Mrs. D. Helen & Dr. Coombs came from the Lake. Charlotte has been sick a week, but had to go to the office this p.m. because everyone else was sick! I think Helen's doctor's very charming - she's young - presume between 25 & 30 - tho' she doesn't look more than 25. And is a charming Boston girl - well dressed & modest & pleasant & not a bit "professional." Started home about 6 - via Pearl Street. Two lovely letters from Claude today and one from Gertrude & one from Mr. Hodges - regretting not to have seen us at Pleasant Pt. Threatened rain all the evening - but didn't. A breeze & cooler. Stopped my accounts (about 8:30) to ride Diana to a fire on Spring St. (or alley). Nothing serious, but "pretty engines." Am re-reading "Alice in Wonderland" which I find very clever. "Defender" came in 7 min. ahead (first race) Theo. says.
