[Chicago—Thursday, 7 October 1875]

Thursday. Beautiful morning. Made an hour by mistaking the dial hand of my watch. Drove out to see the Great Pacific hotel & other sights with “J.” Mr. William Clarke called twice—in the evening he brought his Sister’s journal from Egypt and Mrs Hoopers poems again for “J” to see. He was frighted away at last by hearing J. say I must go to pack—nevertheless dear brother Robert insisted upon our sitting down together for a drop of whiskey and water and a trifle more fun. We were all in bed at ten.
