Thurs., 12 Morning devotions. A lovely day. Make a strawberry shortcake for dinner. Also have bullpouts caught this afternoon in Lake Champlain. Go with Tuttle through Panton & Addison after dinner. A most wonderful country since it is new. The trees are soft & feathery, just leaving out (sic). After a sleepless night, Lillian Emerson & a young woman call. On their way from Richford to Rutland. She visited Ben’s grave & ordered flowers for Memorial Day.
This Ben is, I think, an uncle.
