Saturday, Oct 17, 1885 Sara went off directly after breakfast out among the [?] soliciting contributions for the Industrial Home and did not return until about 4 o'clock. I busied myself in many things among others putting in glass where they had been broken. My father got up at noon [and?] we sat on the back porch in the sunshine. I read in Taylors Story of Kennett with much interest. It has been a beautiful Indian Summer sort of day and the color increases hourly. Calvert telegraphed [that?] he would be here in the 7 o'clock train. Tom went to meet him. [I?] expect to go to Shokan on Monday. Sara got another note from Tivoli [wanting?] her to come up and I think she will have to go on [Monday?]. It complicates matters as I do not like to go away when [she?] does. But we will talk it over tomorrow.
