“Walked with Beatrice up to the top of the Glassalt Falls. I rested once or twice & stopped to look at the Falls, which were very full. We had a slight shower. — Received a telegram from Affie, saying that Marie had had a daughter this morning at ½ p. 10 & that both were doing quite well. — After luncheon we drove to the Lime of Muich where we got out & scrambled down the awkward path, to look at the Lime, which was very fine. It rained almost the whole time. — Reading & writing, & playing duets with Beatrice. — Janie E. read a little after dinner. —“
