Friday, May 22, 1885 In my room all day. Made some preparations toward evening and thinking over ways and means and pondering what is best to do next in the negotiations for the sale of our place. I wish it were settled and then my plans for the summer could be arranged. Now all is chaos. Marion went up to the Braces, intending to return this evening but Calvert received a telegram from her just before dinner saying she would not come until tomorrow. It has looked like rain all day and just before I went to dinner rained slightly. Spent the evening with Miss Nesmith & Mrs. Anderson. Mr. Fletcher was there. He and Mrs. Anderson sang.
