Saturday, July 18, 1874- The Stoddards went home by the noon train. He had so far recovered as to be able to walk quite comfortably. Mrs. Wood nee Miss Penfield who was here two years ago dined with us and I took her and Gertrude to Kingston. Recd. a letter from Alfred Booth enclosing his check for $500 for the "Pine Tree" picture which he took to Liverpool with him today.
