Monday, Oct 1, 1888 It rained when we awoke. I went down town on some errands and to order a cab for Edith Cook who went by the 11 55 train. It is rainy and cold. I go tomorrow to Bisby with Maj. Wilkinson to make the sketch for Genl. Husted. If we have weather like this it will not be very pleasant. Bowyers wife arrived just as we were finishing dinner. It has rained all day. I am reading "Marius the Epicurean".
