rode our wheels down to the ball game - reach- ing there in time to see most of a foot ball game (International rules) which came first & was pretty - and a fat man who walked it was very funny - Rochester won & they carried some of the victors from the field. I enjoyed watching the play. We or rather Con - saw Harvey Ellis and Geo. Humphrey - in another stand - but not Will, Helen
& Mary - tho' they were there. The ball game was fine - I never saw such good playing - & the way they "guyed" the men - "Ten Dollars" - & "Now Don" - &c.&c. was rich. They played 10 innings - score 4 to 4 - we came away after the first half of the 9th & rode up State St. I felt pretty tired, & lay down for a rest. They had a flag raising at Behn's. Orphans sang - Papa read a poem &c.&c. I didn't go over till afterward - then we chatted - looked at photographs - ate - drank - danced &c. All our family were there - and Con - and many others. Came home after eleven, I think - Claude is work- ing day & night this week on a Competition, for the Pennsylvania State House, Harrisburg. June 1. Tues. Staid down to lunch, met Miss Holmes. Cad Chapin was up on her new wheel tonight & gushed over my room &c. Then I went down to Mary's & visited with 4 sisters.
