Wednesday, May 6, 1885 Came down to N. Y. by the morning train which [was?] an hour late bringing with me Clarence Mc Kibbin, George Mc Kibbins [?] who has been visiting at Mr. Jansen Andersons. The weather [?] still cold and raw. Mrs. Lacy called. She had her pocket book [stolen?] at the Brooklyn ferry on Monday, with its contents, twenty eight dollars, a great loss to her who has to earn her money I should think. I feel excited, tired, and half discouraged. Mary, Calvert and Marion went to a Memorial Concert of the Mendelssohn Glee Club in memory of Bowman its former conductor. I spent the evening at home reading Genl. J. E. Johnsons paper on the war in which he severely criticises Jeff Davis' history of the war, and also a paper by Genl. Luboden[?]. Went to the club a short time.
