It has rained all day. Gussie went to Yonkers, very reluctantly I think. Have written to Eastman, Booth, Mary Gifford, Mr. & Mrs. Church, Mr. Jas. B. Johnston and to Mrs. Walter B Crane who sent me specially some flowers the day Gertrude was buried. I have tried to write in a cheerful and hopeful vein to every one, just as I feel. A letter came from Mrs. Bachelder full of love and regret for Gertrude. Mr. B. who broke his knee pan a year ago has broken the other and they are at their sea side cottage where they intend to stay all winter.
