7/5/09 Portage.
the depths below and really under you. The way back was more wearisome but not less beautiful. We rested oftener - for lemonade & at the old council House & Mary Jemison's Grave - which we skipped in the morning. The last long stairs were the best of all. & we got to the hotel in time to wash & rest a little before our trains left. Trudy's - right in front of the hotel - as she went to Castile on the Erie to visit Miss Lathrop in Pike till tomorrow. Ours was the Pennsylvania - which comes thro' the "park" but is not scheduled to stop - so Mary & I had a "Carriage & spin" at a dollar to take us to Portageville - & the train stopped at the park after all! (ha! ha!!) The ride home was really delightful - but we each sat alone & hardly said a word we were so tired. When I got home I found that the family had just seen an air ship (dirigible balloon) & "Capt. Dallas" come sailing down the river & it had flown close over Cro'nest - so the man took off his hat to them - & Jo, Claude & Henry chased it out thro' the woods! It must have been very exciting. I had a nice hot bath when I got home & supper and bed & sleep!! Good & tired. July 6. Tues. Lovely day. My legs like poles this morning. Had to have an alcohol rub before I could move them much. Rode 4 times! Anderson
was here. Hemeny spent a good deal of the a.m.
