Wednesday, July 2, 1873- Bowyer and I took a walk along the Kingston Creek from the bridge down below Shufeldts. It was intensley hot. Coming home we passed the circus which had just arrived and there was great excitement among the country people. Gertrude received a telegram from Alice Sawyer announcing her safe arrival from Europe. Sara received a letter from Mary Gifford telling her that Sanford had come up for the summer. Hiram Powers died in Florence about a week ago. The last letter I had from Bayard Taylor he said Powers looked as though he would not live long.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
