1899.
July 3. Mon. Edith’s birthday – and hot enough! Mama & I went shopping this noon & bought her a new hat. We lunched with Edith & Mary at Sibley’s. At night (5:30) stood down by Smith–Perkins & listened to the Toronto band playing “Yankee Doodle” etc. Harvey came by & remarked “Great day for Iceland!” In the evening I rode out to the park with Con & we had a long talk (and some root beer) July 4 Tues. Didn’t sleep much. The air was so full of the fourth – but none of it on this street, with dear Mrs. Behn lying dead. This morning I rode down town (by way of Mary’s) with Edith and saw Frank Davis & Geo. Humphrey & some “visiting soldiers”. The afternoon was spent in the Cutler Building – mostly the new part- watching the parade. The big Brad– street school was full of the office & their friends & it took the whole afternoon. I took pictures for the office in general & Mr. Gilmore in particular. Afterward Mary, Edith and I walked way down to Edith‘s (thro’ the crowd!) and had lemonade and rested
