a Harlem train and had a long ride 'way up to 125th St. I saw ever so many apartment houses we have chutes
in & know about - The Empire is quite imposing. It was quite an interesting ride to see, as I'd never been up there before. It is very high & new just began reaching Harlem & you can see the Convent & other buildings and "green grocers" gardens &c - Glimpses of the park between streets all the way up. We walked over toward the North River, where we spied St. Nicholas Ave. & remembered we found Mrs. Hotchkin lived on it at No. 171. Mama was delighted with the prospect of seeing her, so we went down & called on her, in a flat. She looked very nice & was much pleased to see us, invited us to lunch, told us how she taught cooking lessons in the Deaf Mute Inst. & about Walter
& how "lovely" he is and so on. Gave Mama her picture and invited me to visit her. At last we came out & got a little horse car going up St. N. Ave. to Ft. Lee ferry & then walked up a hill & some steps and at last beheld Riverside Drive and some "lady"-bicyclists - & others.
