There were present beside Mr & Mrs. Johnson, Alice and me, Mrs. Smith of the ethnological [?] an investigation of Indian lore, Mrs. Kendrick and Mrs. Wi de Meyer. A very pleasant occasion and I remained until 4 oclock. When I came to my room it was raining quite fast. Bade Alice good bye. She goes home Tuesday and I go home tomorrow morning to be gone until Tuesday. Downings ship the Serria arrived in Queenstown yesterday after a passage of only 7 days.
