Sunday, June 24, 1883 Very hot. Booth and I started out to go to the bridge but only got as far as the cemetery when he thought it too hot and we returned. He is disinclined to much exercise and it seems to me suffers for the lack of it. We took a ride after tea Booth, Downing, Edwina and I around by the new depot, to the Alms house and home by the river road. Booth dont enjoy riding much. Would rather sit quietly at home. He lost the stone out of his Shakespeare ring but luckily we found it in the wagon.
