Monday, May 11, 1885 Still cold and chilly with wind from N. W. Calvert is engaged with Terry whose house he is building. My father came down and spent a good part of the day down stairs. We all talked about the hope of selling the place and discussed plans for our future in case we sell. I went down town and paid a note of $250 at the bank. A letter came from Lucy. Sara and I came down by the 7.15 evening train leaving Mary and Calvert there. Found Marion had returned and the house dark but Sara woke her and got herself fixed for the night.
