Thursday, May 21, 1885 Edwina and her husband were to have sailed today according to the newspapers, but I find no reference to it. Thought out last night after I went to bed a reply to Sams note which I have sent him today substantially as it first shaped itself in my mind, after having shown it to Calvert who went over it critically and suggested a few slight changes. I have felt hopeful and in a measure happy while anticipating this sale and this sense of freedom and relief it would bring, and now while I am by no means sure we may not still make a bargain, a feeling of doubt comes to me and I again get a glimpse of worries and anxieties. Marion and I called on Mrs. Scott and some visitors coming to see Marion I came to my room a little after 10. The weather is just comfortable and it is pleasant in the city.
