Staid down to lunch again - at Sibley's and did the last of my shopping - "Artie" for Gilmore & a French gilt tape measure for Martha &c. J.G. sent Emerich
$50 and promised him an increase in salary of $200.00 for '97! Gilmore is getting enthusiastic & has jokes and rhymes for his Christmas tree! Mrs. Jones was here to supper and we had a nice little visit afterwards. She went home about 8 and by 1/2 past or so Papa & I were loaded up with two baskets and a bundle and started for Davis'. Found all home but Helen and she came later (after "gym") Mrs. Davis took me upstairs to see her pretty window seat. We had apples (and Nux Vomica!) and "swapped" jokes and rhymes. Charlotte is lovely and funny. Came home on the 10:10 car - getting cold. Dec. 24 Thursday All the excitement of the day before Christmas! Nice brisk-crisp winter day - but not sunny. Delivered parcels this noon. Got back to find Martha going home for the day & De Amici's "Spain" - a beautiful edition with a Merry Xmas from J.G. & J.W.C.! Martha gave me a pretty yellow college flag - she made herself. J.G. told me I could go home, but I had things to do and didn't - till five. After everyone had gone Gilmore came in with "my present" (we had a bet & I won it? but it turned out not to be a joke - but $25.00 in gold! Of course I didn't want to take it, in a way, but he had $50
