Friday the 6th
A pleasant day. Amos + May walked up to Amozelle’s in the p.m. made a short call. In the evening had the Baldwins in. Mr Baldwin brought his chello. We had a most enjoyable time. Amos gave some readings from Shakespeare + May played also Ramona + her father. Edith played some but not as much as I wish she had. went to bed exhausted.
