Wednesday, Oct 20, 1880 Went to Hudson by 11 oclock train to see Mr & Mrs Sawyer who are there attending the U. S. Convention of Universalists. At the church I met Mary Gifford who arrived home from the West yesterday. Saw Mr & Mrs. Sawyer and went home with Mary to dinner. Rev. Mr. Adams & wife were there and Rev. Mr. Saxe of Rochester and a Mrs. Storer or Story. Mr. Sawyer preached in the Dutch Church in the evening to a very small audience, the business of the convention keeping the people at the Universalist church. I intended to have come home but was persuaded to stay all night.
