Saturday, Nov 10, 1888 Rained all day and at intervals very hard. I called at the Cantines on my way down town after lunch to report about the meeting last night. He was up and feeling better. Have been looking the literary & artistic [?] of Walter Scott and read Robt. Elsmere this evening finishing the first half. It rained very hard in the evening and the whole country seems soaked and saturated.
