26 Recited. Went up with Mack to dinner. Had such a good time with Gus. She came home with me and went to Lyceum.
The debate was dull but not so the talk after we came home.
27th This bitter cold morning I took Gus home went over to the farm for the first time since we really left.
It seems natural enough. Went up to singing school.
28th To night Emâ€™s party is to come off. Wonder what it will be? Pleasant I hope. I anticipate much yet I rather dread it for some way or other it is so much more of a task for me to be lively than it used to be.
