Saturday Nov. 23

Sister Sarah and William went to town and he returned about noon on an extra train.  Gave Mr. Wilson one of the train men a large basket of russet apples.
An Irish woman from the tunnel came to complain of the Boss - Grattan - whom she called a "hungry hound".  She had quarreled with him and with her husband who gave her, she said, "an awful bating" for abusing the Boss--  She cried and talked loud, and from the strong smell of whiskey it was evident that she had been drinking.  Kate came home this evening.
