President McKinley's Secretary Of State. Papa says it was General Tecumseh Sherman (the Sherman) who was then General-in-chief of the Army and inspecting the forts (Sacketts Harbor, Oswego &c.) Papa, Mr. Streeter (Jno?) and Gen. Winslow (?) were the committee to receive him & they got quite chummy. He beckoned to us & held (Claude & me on his knees going down to Adams in the train - and talked to us. It is fine outdoors- I know by the whiffs I get - but I'm lazy and haven't been out this day. Jan 18. Monday I had the pleasure (?) of spending half an hour or so in Dr. Scranton's dental chair this noon, while he hoed at they teeth and made cold shivers run up and down my spine. Then I enjoyed (?) lunch at Sibley's, and tonight ventured forth to the gymnasium - tho' it was stormy and blizzardy. My teeth ached and I was "very miserable, thank you". both Edith& Helen Davis invited me to play Pedro at their houses tomorrow night.Edith first, however. Walked across the bridge met Ned &took car. Jan 19. Tuesday Walked up with Mary this noon and tonight she & Ned & I went to Edith's and played Pedro. Ned & I had almost beaten the first game when I told her she might bid 9 (we were so far ahead) & of course we lost it. Then they beat us again & then we beat them - after popcorn &c. It was a glorious cold moonlight night - Quite ideal for skating. Came down in car with Meta, Theo & Arno.
