1893 March 8. Wednesday

Saw a terrible runaway at 6 p.m - down Main & State St. on a crowded sidewalk - but no one hurt!
A disagreeble day. Was busy at my desk when Ned came at five - with a satchel and told me she wanted me to go to the station with her at nine and see her off for New York - no one but me to know she had gone. When I found she was really in earnest and kind-a' disheartened & felt sneered and laughed at and all I petted her a little and told her how and why things were as they were - and what people tho't of her how and what they would if she went and loved her & she loved me and I went way up & St. Paul St. to her car with her - and she did give me such a sweet look and said "Perhaps she'd wait till September" - and "No, she didn't believe she'd go to-night" - and I knew she wouldn't - dear girl. I spent a pleasant evening by the parlor lamp reading Scribner's and went to bed rather early to lay awake and think and hear it rain rain. Mr. Jones says Nelly has had the grip again. I gave her bunch of pansies.
