Sunday, June 23, 1872- Miss Sterling left on Saturday. We all regretted to have her go for she has impressed us all as a fine, noble woman. Mary Gifford and Mrs. Wilkinson came on Friday and Mary returned the same day. Mary Vaux, Laura, Marian and Haven Putnam came on Friday with the Powell and Major Wilkinson came Saturday morning. He and his wife returned home last evening. I received a letter from H. K. Brown a day or two ago asking me if I would go fishing with him. I wrote him yesterday to come. Haven Putnam would go with me to Lake Placid where I should very much like to go if it were not for my engagement with Brown.
