First we visited dear Gen. Grant's poor little tomb - in charge of an Irish policeman who was answering numerous questions from a group of women sightseers. I was glad enough to behold a large new monument being erected. Then we took a mile's walk (or more) down the Drive. The breeze was fresh and strong but the sky was beautiful & the river & the foliage & surroundings and we enjoyed it very much - Mama seemed to, too. Bicycles, carts, "traps" &c. &c. were very numerous and there was still the N.Y. characteristics of incongruity of landscape at various points. It looked a little new. We sat down once or twice - gazed at the tree-tops below us on the river bank at 104th St. We crossed through to the Boulevard & took a horse car down to 59th St. A good bicycle ride I should judge but not as attractive otherwise as I had imagined. Babies & their attendants were very numerous - Also fine looking
