151MAY 30 May 1910 Of course it poured this morning & everyone plans were spoiled. I made prints, viewed & and was over to Meta's about 10:30 when Bess called me up & invited me down there. I went to lunch & after (only "Uncle" there) and then we went over to Augustus St. to see "the lot" (took pictures with my new camera) went to bed & read a while when I got home ([illegible]) & then to the Lyceum & took co. with the Mac's & [illegible] (N.Y.) Rain later! Tues 1911 A beautiful Decoration Day. Mother & I slept late & felt sick did cross - but rested must of the day, reading "The Broad Highway". About 4 went down to see poor sick Bess & Mary. Frances
came too. Then went to the Hippodrome (to kill time) & home to a late supper & reading.
Thurs 1912 A dubious Decoration Day. Rained nearly all day. We had a good time. Breakfast (we 3) about 8:30 - went to the big old barn & all thro' it, visiting the animals &c. Built a rise grate fine & Mary read to us. After dinner took pictures of the lovely old Mahogany, pewter, china &c. sewed &c. Sat around the fire at night and popped corn & ate candy &c. The Barrons are very nice & the things in the house - a real "collection" - are fascinating. Fri 1913. Another lovely day. Lydia
started for the north! I went with Bess, Mary & "Rastus" to Coburg - a gorgeous day but we needed our steamer rug (went we had) Took two meals. Quite a crowd & lots of spooner. We read "V.V's eyes" aloud. A fire day nap on sand.
Sat 1914. An exquisite day. It seems tho' I never would forget it - from 7 till 11. Hammond's Packard, with Bess & Mary. "capt". Rastus Ruth D & Past the Lilacs - Scottsville - Mumford [illegible].

Lovely lunch by the road at 11.4 of us walk from the bridge to Glen Iris The new museum. 5 walk - to the lower falls - 2 lovely houses, bridge &c Another meal. back zipping, thro Portageville, & off to the exquisite High Banks. Supper at the Big Tree & home by moonlight! 160 miles in all!
