[Boston—Wednesday, 18 October 1876]

Wednesday Oct. 18. Heavenly weather again though cool. Jamie in Springfield.

Children’s talk Sunday afternoon on the floor. Willy, Elly Dresel, Alice Ahlborn & Luly Dresel:

Elly—“I had two great-grandfathers but with a talent for music one played the Jewsharp and one the violin.”

Alice A “This man has had so much trouble in business that his whiskers have turned blue.”

(They were painting).
