Monday my mother, Mrs. Davis, Gertrude and I took a ride down the river road in Esopus. It was a perfect day and the river was as beautiful as I ever saw it. Saw several things I would like to paint. Today has been pretty warm. Was hard at work down at the carriage house with my overalls on when Gertrude came down to tell me Mr. Henry M. Field was here. He dined with us and went out on the train to Stamford where he is to recline this evening. Letter from Gussie and one from Sara. Little Lewis contented and they having a good time. Pa paid our Aug 1. interest yesterday but had to have a note $400 discounted to do it. Note Aug 3. mos. due Nov.
