Monday, Feb 2, 1880 Calvert and I went to see Mackayes new theatre next the fifth Av. Hotel. It is very pretty and they are hurrying to get it ready for Wednesday night. We went all over it, saw the three story stage and the drop curtain designed by Tiffany. Painted all day. Booth came in about 3 and staid until I went home when we walked to together. A letter from Sara. The weather very cold. Went to the Council meeting.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
