Saturday, July 4, 1885 It has been a beautiful day with fine skies and showers all about us one of them visiting us with a gentle rain fall of an hours duration. I picked some cherries this forenoon and attended to the various things I find to do each day. I awoke with a dull feeling in my head which continued all day. Calvert, Downing and Marion went to the clam bake of the Rondout Canoe Club up at Codingtons dock. Sara and I were invited but did not go. I wrote to Weir and made some braid.
