Sunday, Apr 19, 1885 I think this is the 24th anniversary of the firing on the Massachusetts troops in Baltimore. A lovely mild day and yet there is plenty of snow on the mountains. Took my father out for a ride. Sara, Girardie & Charlie went along, around by the Point and the river road to the Flat-bush hill and home by the Alms House. My father got pretty tired but he dined with us and after his afternoon rest looked brighter. Mr & Mrs. Cantine called in the afternoon and in the evening Girard & Mary and John & Nannie.
