Mar. 11 Wed Fine day - busy too. Got down at 7:30 this a.m.! Bought my ticket this noon. Tonight we were going to bowl but couldn't get an alley so I went with the Flacks down to Fitzhugh Hall and watched them. Later to the library and then home. Mar. 12 Thurs Mary's birthday and a lovely day. Mother went to the station (Lehigh) with me and there was quite a crowd, but Edith and I got a nice double seat, and had really a comfortable day - but a long time - Miss Fisher (formerly of Greig St.) was on - and others familiar. We ate a lot of our sumptuous lunches as we passed Seneca Lake (at noon) I took lunch for Edith, but Mrs. Maise put up some for her too and we had Florida oranges from Elsie. I read Janette Lee's story in the Smart Set "Simeon Tetlow's Shadow" very good. The scenery was fine - We ate again in late afternoon and went to the driving car for "extra's" but it was late and not particularly agreeable. Some men had our extra seat while we were gone - and a little longer. We were glad to get to Jersey City and the long ferry ride to 23rd St. was most delightful. New York a thing of beauty and the big new Singer Tower
very impressive. Mary met us (only 15 min late) in her fur turban and black caracole coat - very stunning. She was glad to see us, too. Took us right to 14 Irving Place where we had nice rooms (22 and 23, 3rd fl.)
