I met Papa with umbrellas, on the way home and found Con here - calling on Claude such rain! Mch. 20. Saturday Cleared off cold & beautiful this p.m. A gorgeous sunset which I saw while I walked up the avenue with Edith. After supper (or during it) Ned came up and we went down to see Emma, who is better but looks rather "peaked". Washed dishes &c. When I got home. Read '93. Mch 21. Sunday. A nice day today - cloudy mostly. Mary took her first bicycle ride of the season & came here & spent an hour or so with me & asked me to come down this p.m. Con was here to dinner and we sat at dinner a long while. Afterwards he & I wiped dishes for Mama and ate candy. He then went with Claude to call on Charella. I read till 5 or so & then went down to Mary's on Diana. Emma & Nellie were home & pretty soon Mary, Ned & Edith came. They had been up here again. They teazed me to go to church in the evening, but I didn't. Got in the couch-corner & read '93. Mch. 22. Monday Papa's & Mama's 37th Wedding anniversary. Bread plates - dollars - studs - Shapespere's &c. Tonight Minstrel Show at the Lyceum. Claude made a poster for it which Gilmore said was "the only good thing about it" - And it was - nearly. The show was pretty tedious, tho' Mama & Con
