Wednesday, July 13, 1887 A pretty hot day with a breeze from S. W. Tom is getting in the hay slowly. Today is the Centennial Celebration at Clinton and the President and his wife are there. I had a long letter from Weir last night and one from Downing wanting me to go with him to the Maine woods the last of Aug. I have written him today saying how glad I would be to do so but saw no hope of it. I have also written to Lucy.
