20th Lizzie and I had a very pleasant ride to day. Went down to the village. I rode old gray. 21st This afternoon Frank sent for me to go down to Mr. Valentines with her. Had a good time. 22nd This morning Eva and I went down to pick currants. I called on Mrs (?). Gus came to day. To night, mother and I called there. Gus seems so happy with her brothers and sisters. I almost envy her but how wicked when I have such kind parents. I felt dull and low spirited to night when I got home and was so foolish as to have a good crying spell for what I could hardly tell. Mack is on his high heeled shoes for Em has a baby & he is Pa.
