Sunday, June 1, 1884 The weather remains very cool so that a fire has been comfortable in the morning and the evening. I wrote to Downing from whom I had a letter yesterday and also to Annie Lee. After dinner Sara, Girards wife and Girard Jr and Cousin Rachel and I drove over the South Rondout ferry and called at Capt. Andersons. We meant to have gone further but one of the horses lost a shoe and we prolonged our visit there. The Capt and Mrs Anderson were there he having recently returned from California. Lottie who has just come home from Europe, Natalie who is very pretty and Mrs. Jansen Anderson. We had a very pleasant call and they all seemed pleased to see us.
