All did well & looked nice and there was much enthusiasm & applause.

Mr. Davis called us at quarter of 7 & we got up at quarter after or so. Ate breakfast with Charlotte, but didn't get ready to go down with her. Left the house about 8:35 or so. It was a gray morning & growing colder. J.G. started for the Sturges dinner in N.Y. and
