the telegrams in bunches now & then & we checked off the states. Rochester returns came first (early) 6208 for McKinley (went 5000 for Cleveland 4 years ago!) It was evident shortly after 10:30, that he was elected "McKinley & Hobart" and "Black & Woodruff" (State ticket) and the search light showed it & the crowd hooted & marched & tooted - & Co. A. came down 16 abreast - all with yellow crysanthums, & with a live rooster ahead. It was quite a sight - my first - of election night. We had a jolly time - chestnuts - sponge cakes - apples & sandwiches &c. Put Lura on the 11:15 car & then went over into Smith's arcade a minute (where the McArthur's were). Mama & I took the 11:30 car home - with Miss Wiltsie of the R.O.A. and the Milliman's. Was dead tired. Nov. 4th. Wed. Pleasant - but more suggestions of rain. J.G. & everyone else with a broad smile - happy about sound money. Got 50 Ogunquit pictures from Alice - lovely ones - & wrote to her tonight. Claude came home and told me about his class and the "deadly ladies". Tired out tonight. Nov. 5th Thurs. A rainy & windy day (no wheeling) and a wild night ("The trees are sighing aloud and shipspe are tossed at sea" &c)
Stopped for Mary tho' - and she went to "gym" with me. Rose Kernine rode over in the car with us. Charlotte didn't come as we expected, but there was a larger class than usual - Ned, Rose,
