A pleasant day. I have been working in my garden, pruning and raking off last year's growth. The fine weather tempted Lizzie to visit this afternoon. She and I went first to call at Mr. H. Cole's, then at Mr. Briggs', next at Mr. D. B. Calder's and finally to visit Mrs. McClure. We found there Mrs. Harvey Deming, Mrs. Henry Cole, Miss Rebecca House and Miss Ripley. We were tired with our walk ad came home on the cars. Anxious to hear from the boys, dreamed of Ephe last night, wounded.
