1895.
July 17. Wed. A pleasant day - tho' very warm. Got up rather early and got ready for the picnic which started from the Erie at 9:25. Mama & I walked down & found Edith at the station Also the band (54th Reg't) and numerous people. We sat behind the Bradstreets & in front of Mrs. Arrick
& Mama &c. & opposite the Gordon's. The sunshine was dull a good deal of the time, but I worked my pocket Kodak. Took "Avon" (!) and a scene at the Junction crossing & Edith, Miss Gaylord(!) Miss Fairchild &c at the picnic - also the tub races. We rode up on the McPherson & it was cool & pleasant enough - & the band played. It seemed hot, tho', when we got off at Long Point - & we didn't do much but sit under trees (& take pictures) till dinner time. The tub race & swimming races were quite good - & the little pier crowded with spectators. Saw Hamilton win the swimming race - Ernest Millard the Swimming under water & young Strowbridge the Tub race. Ernest Millard introduced me to his friend "Mr. Jones" & dinner was announced just as Miss Gaylord was telling me a long story. She almost ran to dinner with the children. We sat by the Millards &c
