Thursday, Sept 6, 1883 I expected to be very busy today making preparations for our departure but I awoke with a headache and have been able to do but little. It passed off before night. I answered Royals letter. Annie Norton was here at dinner and seemed disappointed that Downing and I are not to be at Lily McEntees wedding on Thursday next. I regret it but hardly feel that I can wait so long. Had a nice long letter from Eastman wanting to go some where but cant find any one to go with. Wants me to go with him somewhere when I get back.
