Saturday, June 9, 1888 Down town. Met John who went to Middletown yesterday to see Nannie. On the whole he was encouraged and felt she was much improved. I stopped in at Kents the stone cutters and found the mistake in my mothers birth was my own. It will be difficult to rectify it. Mrs Lindlsey called on [?] back with her groom riding behind her. She made a long call. Sara asked her to come up Friday when our branch of the State Charities Aid is to meet at our house. Our fence got on fire down in the woods about noon and we all hurried out and put it out before much damage had been done.
