Monday, May 25, 1885 Set out some cucumber plants from the hot bed and trimmed the rose bushes in the garden. The peas are in blossom and every thing growing nicely. Mary and Mary Gifford left by Hudson River road. I drove them down. Mary Gifford went to Pokeepsie and Mary Vaux to Fishkill to call on Mrs. Monell on her way home. Worked all afternoon in my mothers garden and got very hot and tired. Girard came over in the evening and we discussed the probabilities of selling the place.
