A letter from Lily French and this evening one from R. M. Hoe Jr. asking when he could come to my room to see my pictures which his Uncle had spoken to him of. Dined with Gifford in their new apartment. They are very nicely situated. How dear Gertrude would have enjoyed this pleasant place and how often she used to wish we had just such an apartment where we could invite our friends. Wrote to Lucy and to Lily French and a note to Mr. Hoe. Am going home tomorrow and on Monday John McEntee and I are going out on the Mill brook in Delaware Co. fishing. I do not expect to return before a week from next Monday.
