222AUGUST 1 Mon 1910 Claude's birthday & a hard day for all of us. Father suffers & we can do nothing & Mother was there all day. At noon I came home & fed the cats &c. (Very busy at the office) & went up at night to see Father. It was pouring then and later. We all went to Claude's to supper - as Kath was there & Claude, Letitia & I went to Charlotte to the boat with her & Jo. - on their way to [illegible]. I was very very tired. Slept in the den (mostly now) Tues 1911 Our boy's birthday (in Boston) wrote to him. This pm went home early & Mother & I packed up a black chocolate cake & went to "Camp Merrimac" to a perfect "Perfects" picnic at 5. Everyone there & later Gertrude came via the R.W. & O. train from Oswego & Bess, Mary & Captain from their pier tent. Mrs. Baker & Mrs. Mc.Arthur were there too - a lovely time. Thurs 1912 A beautiful cold morning. The lake all quiet & full of reflections. Took a sun bath on the rocks & read awhile & clean walked up the only road (to Cedar Lake) a mile and a half or so. It was full of birds & the air was soft & the sky gray & pretty - meet the children - Adrian & Henry coming back & went to meet the others in the lane. Louise
, Charlotte, Lydia
, Esther, Rob & Edna. Then wrote to the Dear Boy & sewed a little. Was by the fire in the "ball room" seeing Mr. & Mrs [illegible] home reading most of the p.m. The to go rowing with Miss Fisher but it rained. Finished the girls in bathing.
Fri 1913 Nice day but still warm. Went to Claude's birthday dinner - on the veranda. "Sue" looked lovely in gray silk. She & the boys brought in 47 candles plate by plate, afterward - Mr. Stern called (after Mrs. Ruliffson & Adeline
) took us home in his electric.
Sun 1914 Aug 2 This morning Kate
, Trudy & I had a lovely "Ford" ride to Scottsville one way and back another - to Brigg's to dinner. To Hotel Rochester and the Art Gallery. The Conservatory at Highland Park. To Cro'nest which we were caught in the rain and finally home ok to rest & flinch & sat by the veranda &c. A lovely rain.
