wast postponed - but invited me to Inspection, on Friday - At the church supper Rose waited on us & Sam Hamilton's orchestra played - very well. Everyone went to the lecture afterward & I took Papa & Mama, as I had Gilmore's tickets. It was the Yellowstone Park - and the most marvellous revelations of that region - as all the views were marvelously colored & in the natural colors. The lecture was poetical & witty by turns & we all enjoyed it. Still wind & snow, coming home. J.G. still sick. Feb. 13. Sat. Still and sunny & pleasant today - by noon. It was sweeping day & I staid down to lunch. Went to G. & M.'s & got Matie and we went first to Dr. Lasalle's & then to lunch & then for Valentine's. Matie has some funny ones. Matie told me all about how JHG proposed to her once upon a time. I was quite surprised. She says she never told anyone before - which I think was the proper thing to do (or not do!) At 5 o'clock I met Mary & we went up to Lura's & found her sitting up as cosy as anything - in pink & white & Mrs. Arnold & Mrs. Baker "amusing" her. Had a nice call & walked home. This morning (or last night) the Davises got word that their aunt Anna was dead & this morning Mrs. Davis & Frank left for Detroit - where Kate was to meet them. Edith came up awhile tonight.
