Saturday, Mar 4, 1882 Our reception today was attended by a crowd of people who seemed to enjoy the occasion. I met many old friends and made some pleasant acquaintances and on the whole rather enjoyed what I had been dreading not a little. Dined at Platts and met Mrs. Putnam, Ruth and Rosalie Goodman and afterwards went to the monthly meeting of the Century. There were memorial exercises for Dr Bellows and Dr's Colyer & Porter spoke. Dr. Porters remarks were particularly good. The report of the Trustees on moving up town was not discussed and is again back in their hands.
