1896.
Apr. 6. Monday Walked up to Adams St. (on Exchange) with Mary this noon. Had a nice long letter from Ned. Mary Young is down in N.Y. & they are having good time together. I had to dress rather fast for Lura's party tonight. Stopped for Mary who wore a gorgeous new pink silk & chiffon waist & we didn't get there till nearly nine. Mary made me wear the violets "George' gave her. They were lovely. As we were arriving Lura announced that the party was to announce the engagement of Matie Arnold! Soon she arrived, with Mrs. Arnold and the young man, Mr. "Bob." Hawley, Jr. of Williamstown, N.Y., wholesale furniture dealer, &c. He proved very pleasant & very - nice - correct in dress, manners, looks & conversation (he's quite brilliant at the latter.) He was perfectly pleasant self - possessed & at his ease. Matie appeared well & was rather demure. His eyes followed her, but he didn't. He got acquainted with her friends. The guests were - Matie, "Bob", Mrs. Arnold, Mrs. Si. Weaver Mr. & Mrs. Bert Brower, Dr. Hubner, Dr. Yours, Mr. Clifford Shaw, Mr. Benidict, Mr.? (from the "store".) Frank Davis, Charlotte, Mary, Bessie Smith, Miss Bruce, Mabel Rogers, Miss Cunningham ("Cunny") Mr. DeGraff which, with Lura, Mrs. Baker & we made 20 - 5 tables (& more). We had pink pin cushions for markers
