Friday, July 8, 1887 A beautiful morning and I am feeling unusually strong and vigorous, but with the "swimming" feeling when I exert myself. Have written to Dr Taylor a statement of my case and asked him what he would advise. John, Nannie and Ettie came up last evening. John had been to Binnewater to an entertainment of the Engineers Society by Fred, (vicariously) he being ill in Europe. There was a fine spread by Mazetti of N. Y. with champagne etc for 250 people and only about 50 came.
