Had a waltz & a square dance or 2 with him & sat out one. He also asked me again, but I was engaged) Mr. Lee (quite "folksy" tonight - didn't dance with him except now & then in a waltz quadrille figure) Mr. Potter (an atrocious dancer! Had to go through the Prairie Queen with him!) Mr. McLaughin (a lovely waltzer & a nice partner - one dance) Mr. Drake (the cold Mr. D.
warmed up and asked me and we had a very pleasant dance together - also some lemonade) Mr. Kylie (he asked me twice but I was engaged) Mr. Miller (Mary's brother in law - a nice dancer, but kind'a funny.) Albert Mosher (didn't meet "Albert", but enjoyed his society at same supper table!) And Mr. Griswold (who devoted himself to Miss French as usual) - "26 couples" that makes - and I think they all had a good time. I think they had 14 or 15 dances & most everyone staid thro'. Stopped about 1:30. Edith danced about as much as I did, & seemed to enjoy herself. She came home with me to stay all night. Jack Ballagh was my escort home. He had to walk ahead & make a path, the snow was so deep but we didn't mind. Mary & Emma wore white and looked very nice. Edith had her black dress fixed up and I wore my pretty Xmas silk waist. The music was good & the supper sandwiches, coffee, olives & cake. It was about two o'clock when we reached home (Mr. McL. walked to the corner with us too) & poor Jack B. had to go 'way to the almshouse.
