We dined with Frank Weeks to meet Mr. & Mrs. Folsom. Was obliged to leave early to attend a meeting at the Century of our branch of the Centennial Selection Committee where we talked over some details of our work and arranged how and when to go to Boston. All present except Brown. It seems the Committee were invited by Mr. Johnston at Mr. Gordons party to go to Philadelphia on Monday on the occasion of opening a new line of Mr. Johnsons rail road. He did not invite me although I talked with him for some time, still I think he intended to as he told Hicks he had asked me. My relations with Mr. Johnson, while they are entirely friendly would not permit me to assume any invitation as having been given, while I feel quite sure he did not mean to omit me.
