[En route to Philadelphia—Tuesday, 9 May 1876]

Tuesday—May 9th En route for Phila. by a new road which does not stop in N.Y but carries us directly through. It is through beautiful country and the shortest and most direct route of all.

Arrived in Philadelphia by our beautiful new route about nine o’clock, but the delays were endless and we hardly reached Mr. Brown’s house till after ten—then dear J. had to return for the luggage and it was midnight before we were together again. The station was not yet finished and there were mountains of luggage which looked as if days would pass before they could be leveled and dispersed.
