Thursday, Apr 15, 1886 As I went out to dinner I found a note from Louise Weir telling me she was spending a week with her Aunt Lily and think they would both like to see me [?]. I went up there immediately after dinner. Lily has a very tiny apartment in 86th St where she is keeping house with an old colored servant to take care of her. She is employed on the "[?]" to [?]. I spent an hour very agreeably with them. [?] Weir (Johns sister) and a young [?] came in meanwhile. I should not have known Louise who is almost a young woman. I found out she would like to go to the theatre as I invited them both for Saturday night to go and see Dixie in "Adonis" which she chose. On my way down I stopped at the theatre to get tickets but found I could not get good seats so I went to the [?] Square which we [?] but could not get decent seats there. I stopped in at the 5th Avenue Hotel to see if I could get seats there but the theatre ticket office was closed and I will have to go early tomorrow and see what I can do.
