July 3rd. Can it be possible that [I] have really seen Ann Arbor and the University buildings, Ypsilanti and the normal. Yes, there is no doubt of it. I went, had a pleasant time, very, went to Ann Arbor, saw them all, staid with Clara. Mrs. Young is so kind, Gus so pleasant and all. I like everything I have seen and I might almost add, everybody. I will not particularize, my journal, lest you may think me foolishly lavish with my praises and there is no danger of forgetting all or any. Will met me in Detroit on my way home and Saturday night found me among the loved ones there protected by a Divine Providence.
