Ham's cottage is all up & the Mosher's commenced. Sept. 14 Monday Really hot today. Helen was in - delighted with her new duties at school - Edith telephoned. Papa read aloud tonight. Sept 15 Tues. Spent most of the day writing up "St. Helena" (for publication - ?) Went around to the library a little while before supper. Tonight Edith and I went to see "Orrin" in "Hearts Courageous" - a costume play of the most extreme type. The costumes (he wore six!) were really gorgeous and the scenery and acting very good. The leading lady and leading man very attractive - but the play - well - like them all. After the duel scene in the second act they simply couldn't stop clapping and the poor man almost broke his back bowing - He certainly is a pretty boy - In the last act is a marriage scene (they repeat the service to each other, in a ruined church) which it seems to me might really be a marriage. The girl - Maud Fealy - is the Maude Adams style - Mr. Hart was good as Patrick Henry. Orrin Johnson's sister & her husband and two other ladies in white (one Mrs. Whitney?) were in a box.
