Wednesday, Nov 28, 1883 Took my father across the Brooklyn bridge and up to 23rd St by 6. Av. Elevated road to see about some new invention for improvement of hearing, which however did not help him. Then I took him to Marys in time for lunch and went over to see the Art Union Rooms which looked very well I thought. Got some lunch and met Nicoll. Called on Beard and then went after my father and we came home by the 3.50 train W. S. It was pretty cold when we arrived at Kingston with the wind from the North. Calvert was to have come up to spend Thanksgiving but was prevented at the last moment.
