Thursday, Oct 18, 1883 The day dawned most auspiciously for the Newburg Centennial. I put up all our flags the first thing after I went downstairs. I would like to have gone just to see the spectacle but Sara was invited down to Nannies and so I staid with my mother. Spent the forenoon trimming the four Newtown Pippin Apple trees between here and my house. The wind blew from the S. E. this afternoon. Wrote to Eastman. A letter from Jamie and an order for my picture at Chicago which I am going to send to Indianapolis which I signed.
