Thurs., 4 Morning devotions. Cold. Get up late. Cold & cloudy. Ruth cans more cherries. Makes cookies & mince pie which is very fine. Shirley & Warner walk out & Anna comes later with the two children. Ruth receives “The Devil is a Woman” by Mary Alice Kimball. Grace, Anna & the children have a picnic dinner in the barn to celebrate the 4th, which is very quiet here.
(Kimball was likely at Johnson with Ruth, who is listed on the faculty in 1900 and 1903.)
