It rained last night after a long drought and today is like an autumn day with a brisk wind from the north and cool enough for a fire. We have been busy all the week getting the parlor and our room in order. The parlor is very pretty and we enjoy it. I wrote to Frank Weeks to come up whenever he was ready and we would go on our trouting excursion. I had a telegram from him last night that he would come up Monday by the 4 P.M. train. We are going to the head of the Rondout. Wrote to Lucy and to Gussie.
