Tuesday, Oct 23, 1888 It has rained slightly nearly all day. Tom has picked the Spitzenbergh apples but had to work nearly all day in a sort of mist. Out of the 23 days of this month, some one says 17 have been rainy. I went down town to do some errands and to the Cement Co's office to see about some barrels for the apples. I saw Mr. Lindsley. He spoke of Joe having been out to Fort Bridger. I gathered from what he told me that although he was spending a good deal of money traveling about, that they had made up their minds it was cheaper to pay his bills in this way than to have him stay at home and interfere in the business. This evening Girard and I went up to the Academy of Music to hear Warner Miller. The place was crowded notwithstanding the unfavorable night and he made an excellent address and I think produced a favorable impression.
