1898.
I worked on hassocks & things & fixed up the rooms. Con came up & staid to dinner & spent the afternoon. Mary came up this morning in the new fur cape (the first time she'd worn it) It is lovely & she looked very swell. We had a nice little visit & she tho't the rooms looked fine. I have a new mahogany chair for mine (with Claude - money) & Lura gave me lovely brass candlesticks - & other Xmas things help. Fredericka came up this pm, & staid & hour. It was very cold. I curled up in the corner & read all the evening. Jan. 2. Sun. A nice quiet day - up rather late but had several hours solid reading. Con came to dinner. Had been home "strum- ming" & fixing his room all morning. He staid till late p.m., when Lura & Helen
were here. We three girls went down to Mary's & sat beside the grate fire till Lura went home (to manicure Miss Hutchinson's nails) and then we all had supper & I came home & read. Jan. 3. Mon Such a busy day. Tonight was the first session at the new gymnasium. We didn't do anything I met Mrs Marie McVeaux and two or three others who are to be in the class, and then we went into the "stone house" and heard a little girl recite & had "refreshments" & came home. Fine cold night.
