We went thro' Carlton Place & down the pretty walk on West Avenue to the asphalt & then way down to Ford & thro' on the dirt road to Adams, where we passed "George", the popcorn man & his funny little donkey & we passed MacArthur's later. I stopped there a few minutes - Found we'd gone nearly 11 miles. Frank Davis was there. I came home to a delicious lunch and then wrote & read. Found Frank Decker had been here again for Mama to entertain. May 25th Monday Walked this morning, as I had some shopping to do. Got down early too. Rode this p.m. Met Ned, as I was coming home, and she persuaded me to stay down to supper with her at Harned's. So I went back & telephoned Mama (orphan asylum) while Ned put my wheel away. We had a nice cozy chat & supper (coffee, creamed potatoes & toast) and then up in her room we sat till dark & talked by the window - watching the strange gray light come & go & fade. When the gas was lit I read aloud to her a story from Harper's - It rained some, but I went home on Diana between showers, in the blackness of night. Sewed some and read. After midnight, or so, it May 26. Tuesday
Cyclometer. 1300. (Cent. Av. Bridge)
thundered & lightened most incessantly, so as to keep me awake - or nearly so - till 'most morning. It was too muddy to ride down, but I did so this p.m. in spite of wind. I went around by Central Avenue and saw "The Rivals", special train ("Sheridan" & "The Rivals") tonight, & stopped a moment
