Tuesday, Sept 19, 1882 Went down town and ordered some things for the farm. It has been excessively hot. Have not been able to do much on account of my lame back. Lucy went to N. Y. Sara had a letter from Mary giving an account of Maurices entree into N. Y. The old, old story. I think he has been discharged. A letter from Calvert and later a telegram telling me to join Eastman but I am very undecided about it.
